Solving environment: |

The installation keeps “solving environment:…” and do not move forward in my Mac. Thanks for your help.

Hi @Bing, give it some time - sometimes this process can take a while. If you don’t see this resolve after the next hr or so, double check that there isn’t a firewall on your network that is interfering with the package download process.

I tried it again. It run more than 8 hours and still not responding. I am not sure what to do and please suggest.

Thanks

Hi @Bing!

Ah, I’m sorry.

Please see my suggestion above:

I tried to check about it again. Actually this installation destroyed my old installation pathway of my other QIIME2 versions. i need to go back to my original version. Please let me know how can I set up my original default conda envs.

Please let me know how I can set back my default environment so that I can run QIIME2 directly. Also maybe that is the problem the new installation solving environment forever and never installed it.

Thanks,
Bing

Here is the complete story. I have installed several versions of QIIME2 (see codes below in my conda envs) in my computer and all work very well until i tried to install this newer version qiime2-2020.2. I tried to install qiime2-2020.2 and completed the conda update (went well), and then i moved to install qiime2-2020.2. It kept showing “solving environment |/” forever. I failed to install qiime2-2020.2. However, this process seems destroyed the path for all my other versions of qiime2 (see below).

i have to copy “activate” file from “bin” to put it in “envs” :weary: :weary: I do not think this is right as I do not need to do anything before I updated conda and tried to install this new version of qiime2. What i did before was just enter “source activate qiime2-2019.10”, it will run qiime2 for me. No additional steps at all. Here are the codes for my qiime2 installations before:

  [email protected] ~ % cd miniconda3
    [email protected] miniconda3 % ls
    LICENSE.txt	doc		lib		pkgs		sbin
    bin		envs		libexec		plugins		share

    conda-meta	include		phrasebooks	resources	translations
    [email protected] miniconda3 % source activate qiime2-2019.10

    [email protected] miniconda3 % source envs

    [email protected] miniconda3 % cd envs
    [email protected] envs % ls 
    qiime2-2018.4	qiime2-2019.10
    qiime1		qiime2-2019.1	qiime2-2019.7
    [email protected] envs % source activate qiime2-2019.10
    complete:13: command not found: compdef
    (qiime2-2019.10) [email protected]_64-apple-darwin13 envs % 

The location of qiime2-2019.10 suddenly became weird too, with “@x86_64-apple-darwin13 envs” at the end, never have that before. i need your help with fixing this directory problem with miniconda first, then I need your help with qiime2-2020.2 installation.

Thanks,

Hi @Bing - have you followed all of the miniconda installation instructions, including setting up your shell? I’m not really sure what is going on here, and I’m not certain we can help diagnose, since I don’t see anything specifically related to QIIME 2 wrong here.

Yes. All the miniconda installation instructions were followed a while ago. I used QIIME2 very well without any issues. It happened suddenly when i tried to install qiime2-2020.2. As I have miniconda3 all the versions of QIIME2 in my mac already. see below:

Do I need to reinstall the miniconda3 again? Then I can install the qiime2?

Thanks,
Bing

Maybe?

Did you upgrade to macos catalina some time in there? That might be part of the problem…

Yes I updated this mac to Catalina for a while. I tried reinstall conda and it fixed some problem.

Now i installed qiime2-2020.2. Here I still have some issues:

  1. command not found: compdef
  2. deactivate command is not working?

Do I need to fix these problems?

Thanks,
Bing

If you didn’t perform a clean, full installation, you might need to make some adjustments to your shell in order to ensure that everything works as expected. Please see this doc from the conda team:

https://docs.conda.io/projects/conda/en/latest/user-guide/install/macos.html

Thanks so much and have a good weekend!
