QIIME Installation problem

Hi, today I have tried to install Qiime2 on Ubuntu 18.04 using this guide: QIIME installation guide and this is what appear:

[email protected]:~ pip install numpy Requirement already satisfied: numpy in ./miniconda3/lib/python3.6/site-packages (1.15.0) [email protected]:~ pip install qiime

Complete output from command python setup.py egg_info:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 1, in
File “/tmp/pip-install-c01d525p/qiime/setup.py”, line 363

SyntaxError: invalid syntax


Command “python setup.py egg_info” failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-install-c01d525p/qiime/

Do you know how to solve it? Thank you very much!
Best wishes,

Hi @Matteo_S92,

Sorry for the delayed response :frowning:

I think you found the wrong instructions, you’ve got the right conda, but you don’t want to use pip to install anything.

Give these instructions a shot and let us know:
