Just an update, running a pip install with the wheel file download allowed me to finally install it, which was only possibly after upgrading pip. I originally received an error stating that the ssl could be reached, but remedied it by using a sudo command to upgrade the tool. [SSL: TLSV1_ALERT_PROTOCOL_VERSION] .
However, after I finished downloading and installing kolibri, trying to access the program by entering in the ip address for the default browser did not function. I just received an error message stating that the site could not be reached. I remedied this by typing in http://127.0.0.1:8080/setup_wizard/#/ to the search bar. Now, all is running smoothly.
