I'm using Windows 10 Home Edition and the Anaconda Prompt from anaconda3, and I'm trying to install the QIIME 2 Core 2022.2 distribution following the instructions linked here:
I have in my home directory the .yml file obtained successfully from this command:
But the next command fails to create a new conda environment:
conda env create -n qiime2-2022.2 --file qiime2-2022.2-py38-linux-conda.yml
I can see the command start to process, but then it fails with this error message:
Collecting package metadata (repodata.json): done Solving environment: failed ResolvePackageNotFound: - q2-diversity-lib=2022.2.1 - bowtie2=2.4.5 - bioconductor-genomicranges=1.46.1 - tktable=2.10 - jack=1.9.18 - libev=4.33 - blast=2.12.0 - hmmer=3.1b2 - iqtree=2.2.0_beta - and the dashed list continues with more than 100 more packages that were not found
I received the same error on all these terminals on my Windows computer:
Anaconda Prompt (anaconda3)
Anaconda Prompt (miniconda3)
Anaconda Powershell Prompt (anaconda3)
Anaconda Powershell Prompt (miniconda3)
but the dashed list of packages in the error message that were not found was slightly different between different terminals and was sometimes different when I ran the command multiple times in the same terminal.
I also tried it on the Ubuntu on Windows terminal (which I think uses the Windows Subsystem for Linux), but this seems not to support Conda, with error message:
conda:command not found
Some posts on other forums seemed to suggest that I modify the .yml file and move every package listed in the ResolvePackageNotFound error message to below a
- Pip: line in the .yml, but this does not seem feasible given that there are so many packages in the list.
It seemed like a potential solution would be to try to get everything listed in the .yml file onto my computer in some way other than the command that creates a new environment, so I tried creating the new environment and then updating it with all the packages in the .yml file in three separate commands:
conda create --name qiime2-2022.2 conda activate qiime2-2022.2 conda env update --file qiime2-2022.2-py38-linux-conda.yml
But the last command failed with a different error:
Collecting package metadata (repodata.json): done Solving environment: done Preparing transaction: done Verifying transaction: done Executing transaction: done Installing pip dependencies: / Ran pip subprocess with arguments: ['C:\\Users\\pemul\\anaconda3\\envs\\qiime2-20222.2\\python.exe', '-m', 'pip', 'install', '-U', '-r', 'C:\\Users\\pemul\\condaenv.qe9hexqa.requirements.txt'] Pip subprocess output: Pip subprocess error: ERROR: Invalid requirement: '_libgcc_mutex==0.1' (from line 1 of C:\Users\pemul\condaenv.qe9hexqa.requirements.txt) failed CondaEnvException: Pip failed
I'm out of ideas for resolving either of these errors.
Thanks for any help!
