Installation of q2-aldex2 fails under qiime2.2021.4

Installation of q2-aldex2 in qiime2 2021.4 is failing during Solving environment step when using:
conda install -c dgiguere q2-aldex2

Hello @zaki,

I checked the q2-aldex2 page in the Qiime 2 Library, and it says aldex2 has only been tested with QIIME 2 version 2019.7.

I wonder if it's not compatible with the newer 2021.4 version you are running. Have you tried installing it in the older 2019.7 conda environment?

Thx for the quick response. After additional research I realized that aldex2 requires python 3.6 and therefore it works up to qiime2 2021.2. In the latest version qiime2 2021.4 switched to python 3.8 and the installation of aldex2 fails.
