"Found conflicts!" QIIME2 2022.8 installation

Hi all! I'm trying to install 2022.8 on ubuntu 22.04 and am getting the "found conflicts!" error:

$ conda env create -n qiime2-2022.8 --file qiime2-2022.8-py38-linux-conda.yml

From sleuthing in previous posts, could there be an error in environment files? Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi @jasonq,
welcome in the forum!
I have seen this error before and in my case was not related to the environment I was creating. In fact the only way I could get rid of this was by reintalling my conda.
You can back up all you renvirmnments and then put them back in the correct location (assuming you keep them in '$HOME/anaconda/env'). so you wont loose them.
Let see if other people have other suggestion they can offer.

Hi @jasonq,

Piggybacking off of @llenzi - our QIIME 2 environment files should be fine; it looks like there may be a competing R environment on your machine that is causing these conflicts.

Here are a few ways you can clear your environment in R, which may resolve these R package conflicts:

Hope this helps!

Thanks for checking and for the resources! Will try.
