install qiime2 in an existing virtual environment

Is there a way to install qiime2 in an existing virtual environment already containing a previous version of qiime2, but also a lot of other packages. Otherwise I would have to copy the packages I also use to the other environments each time, some of which do not install easily using conda or pip

To avoid conflicts between different dependencies it is better to install a newer version of Qiime2 into a new environment. Most probably you will not be able to install Q2 into already existing environment with bunch of packages installed. And even in case of successful installation there is a high possibility of some hidden issues with different packages/plugins.
