I seem to have Pyserial 2.6 installed on my Pi which might be causing my connection issues. When I try to upgrade I get the following:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo apt-get upgrade python-serial
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
Calculating upgrade… python-serial is already the newest version.
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
libasn1-8-heimdal libgssapi3-heimdal libhcrypto4-heimdal libheimbase1-heimdal libheimntlm0-heimdal
libhx509-5-heimdal libkrb5-26-heimdal libroken18-heimdal libwind0-heimdal libxfce4ui-1-0
pypy-upstream-doc wiringpi xfce-keyboard-shortcuts
Use ‘apt-get autoremove’ to remove them.

I have also tried the following with another barrier:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo pip install pyserial --upgrade

Any thoughts on how I could upgrade this?
