error igraph_attributes.h: No such file or directory when installing igraph

It takes me a lot of time to pip install python-igraph on a remote ubuntu machine. The ¬†error I got is “igraph_attributes.h: No such file or directory.” but that is not the real problem.

The real problem happens when pip was trying to compile the c core of igraph and it failed due to missing library lxml2!. And what I really need is THE FOLLOWING:

sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev
