Qiime2 installation on mac

The "conda env create -n q2-2024.2 --file qiime2-amplicon-2024.2-py38-osx-conda.yml" command seems to work but the environment is not created and there is no error.

Hi @Rama,
Did you active your qiime2 env?

Run conda activate q2-2024.2 to activate your env.

Hi @Rama,

Thanks for reaching out! Just to add on to @cherman2's recommendation - if activating this environment is unsuccessful, please try the following steps (and provide the entire output you see on your screen if these steps are unsuccessful):

This will remove any existing environment file with this name name.

rm qiime2-amplicon-2024.2-py38-osx-conda.yml

This ensures you're downloading the most recent version of this file.

wget https://data.qiime2.org/distro/amplicon/qiime2-amplicon-2024.2-py38-osx-conda.yml
conda env create -n qiime2-amplicon-2024.2 --file qiime2-amplicon-2024.2-py38-osx-conda.yml

Activation of your environment should now be successful if you don't run into any errors prior to this step.

conda activate qiime2-amplicon-2024.2

Your final check for success will be to check the existing versions for all of the QIIME 2 Amplicon plugins:

qiime info

You'll expect to see 2024.2* versions in the output of this command. From here you should be all set! Cheers :lizard:

Thank you for your help. I still have the same problem though.

Hello Rama,

After a conda environment is installed, it will tell you it was successfully installed.

It looks like the installation was interrupted here.


Instead, it should show you the packages it will install and ask you if you want to continue.

Try it again and wait until it tells you it finished successfully.
(This may take a few minutes.)
