pytorch – installing NVIDIA Apex for Python 3.8.5

I am running a code that apparently requires NVIDIA apex (I initially didn’t know and installed the wrong apex). I am unsure how to fix the final error:

(proxy) (jalal@goku proxynca_pp)$ CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=0,1 python train.py --dataset cub  --config config/cub.json --mode train --apex --seed 0
(1024, 4096)

  DEPRECATION: A future pip version will change local packages to be built in-place without first copying to a temporary directory. We recommend you use --use-feature=in-tree-build to test your packages with this new behavior before it becomes the default.
   pip 21.3 will remove support for this functionality. You can find discussion regarding this at https://github.com/pypa/pip/issues/7555.
