Plugin error from SCNIC: 'fastspar'

Hi,
@michael.shaffer @eandersk @nhuda6 @llenzi @thermokarst @cquin @arwqiime @mneranjan31 @kohei-108 and other QIIME2 users & developers...

I am working on q2-SCNIC tutorial shared by "@michael.shaffer q2-SCNIC: A tool for making correlation networks, finding modules of observations and summarizing them" & q2-SCNIC: Community Tutorial.

Currently, I am using QIIME2-2023.5 and was able to install q2-SCNIC using

then

**

pip install scnic

Next to install the plugin:

pip install git+https://github.com/lozuponelab/q2-SCNIC.git
qiime dev refresh-cache

**
&
Finally to see what functions are available, you can use:

qiime SCNIC --help

(it is working fine)

as command

was not working and giving errors.

After installation of SCNIC using pip, I was able to perform importing of feature table

and filtering of data

but while running the next command for generating a correlation table

It is giving an error:

Plugin error from SCNIC:

** [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'fastspar'**

Debug info has been saved to /tmp/qiime2-q2cli-err-s1pz8hhr.log

I have also tried using
conda install -c bioconda -c conda-forge --override-channels fastspar

error: and loop loading for longer time

Then tried using:

Thanks in advance.
