installation problem qiime2 wget (windows)



I´m a student new to programming and would like to install QIIME2 using miniconda (windows). However, it is not possible for me to install wget.

I performed the following steps:

I have followed the instructions from QIIME2 which linked me to the miniconda website and downloaded the miniconda 3 python 3.9 for windows

launched the installer and have installed miniconda.

opened the Anaconda prompt (miniconda3, I do not have anaconda installed) and

updated conda as described by the QIIME2 manual.

install wget using the command "conda install wget" however this is not working
PackagesNotFoundError: The following packages are not available from current channels:
- wget

can someone please explain me how to get wget and thus also qiime2 installed?

Did you try to:

  1. Install wget with pip: pip install wget
  2. Install it from conda-forge: conda install -c conda-forge wget
    To add conda-forge permanently, use conda config --append channels conda-forge
