Matplotlib update fails on Ubuntu

While updating matplotlib I got an error: * The following required packages can not be built: * freetype.
To solve the issue, you should install two packages:
[bash]
# install missing packages
sudo apt-get install libfreetype6-dev pkg-config

# update matplotlib
sudo pip install matplotlib –upgrade
[/bash]

Solution found on github.
