    This is related to files from the previous implementation still
    being around. Please make sure you have fully removed the old mpl
    installation before installing the new one. Be aware that there
    is some difference in the way pip/setuptools/distutils deal with
    namespace packages so look for both `matplotlib` and
    `mpl_toolkits` directories.

        I'm running matplotlib 1.4.3 on linux (ubuntu-based), and was
        able to create
        3D axes until I updated last week.

        Thanks in advance.
