Error – pip version 19.1.1, however version 20.2.4 is available – during Docker image creation

I created basic Dockerfile for my tiny app in Python.

FROM python:alpine3.8
COPY . /asfpApp
WORKDIR /asfpApp
RUN pip install -r requirements.txt
EXPOSE 5000
CMD python ./startApp.py

When I ran command

docker build  --tag name-of-app .

I got:

WARNING: You are using pip version 19.1.1, however version 20.2.4 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command.
The command '/bin/sh -c pip install -r requirements.txt' returned a non-zero code: 1

Firstly I searched my issue, but I found only issue where two versions of pip is used. But that is not my case – as mentioned here Why is pip asking me to upgrade when it's already up-to-date? – I tried

pip show pip

and got:

then:

python -m pip show pip

and got

So I think I use correct version of pip. But when I went throught Docker Desktop and looked at unsuccessful build I found this command:

/bin/sh -c #(nop) ENV PYTHON_PIP_VERSION=19.1.1

So I guess that Docker thinks that I use old version eventhough in my machine is correct version. Any ideas what am I doing wrong?
