Problem with install (conda: error: unrecognized arguments)

Hello, I am trying to install Qiime2 in WSL1, like this:
conda env create -n qiime2-2020.11 --file qiime2-2020.11-py36-linux-conda.yml
And get the following error:

usage: conda [-h] [-v] command ...
conda: error: unrecognized arguments: --file qiime2-2020.11-py36-linux-conda.yml

As if conda doesn't support the argument --file, which is copied directly from your WSL installation guide. Does anyone have an idea of what might be wrong?

My guess is that you somehow have an old version of conda installed that predates the --file flag. Can you run conda info and share the results?


Thank you for the speedy reply.

However, I ended up switching computers and used my mac instead. Install went seemlessly, and thread can be closed.
