Ubuntu conda broken? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    On the Linux Data Science VM (Ubuntu) image, as of a couple of days ago, `conda create` seems to be broken, producing the following error message (e.g. after `conda create --prefix=./myenv python=3.5` although I've tried many other arguments):

    ```

    CondaMultiError: RemoveError: 'requests' is a dependency of conda and cannot be removed from
    conda's operating environment.
    RemoveError: 'setuptools' is a dependency of conda and cannot be removed from
    conda's operating environment.

    ```

    conda --version gives me 4.6.14. I have an older VM, that I created from the DSVM image of some months ago, that claims conda version 4.5, where conda works fine, and believe this command was working as recently as last week.

  • Hello Alan,

    Thank you for your feedback. You can fix this issue by doing 

    sudo /data/anaconda/envs/py35/bin/conda update conda

    Alternatively the latest DSVM Ubuntu image has the fix

    Thanks
