Pip is using the old upstream instead of xpra.org:

> Getting page http://pypi.python.org/simple/xpra
> Getting page http://partiwm.org/wiki/xpra

>  Could not find any downloads that satisfy the requirement xpra

I have no idea how to tell pip to update the links.
(Also, things have changed quite a bit so the installation is likely to fail unless all the new dependencies used by default are installed)

Until someone figures this out, install from your distribution package or from source:
