I'm extremely new to bioinformatics, so please understand my complete ignorance to this process.
My lab use to utilize Michigan States Ribosomal Database Project (RDP), but it recently stopped being supported and is no longer available.
We are attempting to pivot to QIIME 2 to clean up and process illumina base-paired sequences.
I'll get straight to the problem.
So far i downloaded the latest version of Anaconda 3.
From what i have researched, i should be able to use commands to download bioconda, QIIME2, and DADA2.
When i give commands, i get this error.

No matter what I try to download, I get the same error. Has anyone any information on this in relation to the new Mac silicone processor?
