Where to run the command to update pip?

When I build I get a warning to update pip (see below). Where am I supposed to run the suggested command? If I open a git bash and run it there I am getting a message that pip is already updated.

This also didn’t help

It must be done with the python interpreter that PlatformIO uses, so open a CLI and use pio system info to find the “Python Executable”, then use that with -m pip install --upgrade pip.
