Installation error related to conda environment (V2) - SOLVED


I encountered the following error while installing cryoSPARC V2 on an Ubuntu 16.04 machine:

An unexpected error has occurred.
Please consider posting the following information to the
conda GitHub issue tracker at:

Current conda install:

           platform : linux-64
      conda version : 4.3.31
   conda is private : False
  conda-env version : 4.3.31
conda-build version : not installed

Turns out the culprit is /home/cina/.conda/envs/ which was already existing on my environment (because of crYOLO apparently)
Deleting the whole /home/cina/.conda/ directory did the trick for me, and now I was finally able to install cryoSPARC V2. Hope this tip is useful for others as well :slight_smile:
