Installation Error with Conda


I keep running into this error with a new install. The machine in question is running CentOS7.
Cryosparc has its own user/group and its home folder at /local/cryosparc. The installation location is in /opt/cryosparc/install.

This is the error:

  Solving environment: ...working... failed
  NotWritableError: The current user does not have write permissions to a required path.
  path: /local/cryosparc/.conda/pkgs/urls.txt
  uid: 5000
  gid: 5000
  If you feel that permissions on this path are set incorrectly, you can manually
  change them by executing
  $ sudo chown 5000:5000 /local/cryosparc/.conda/pkgs/urls.txt

  In general, it's not advisable to use 'sudo conda'.

The permissions in the home folder look ok to me.

 bash-4.2$ ls -al
total 4
drwxr-xr-x. 4 cryosparc cryosparc  53 Feb 28 00:20 .
drwxr-xr-x. 4 root      root       37 Feb 28 00:09 ..
-rw-------. 1 cryosparc cryosparc 153 Feb 28 00:11 .bash_history
drwxr-xr-x. 3 cryosparc cryosparc  42 Feb 28 00:28 .conda
drwxr-----. 3 cryosparc cryosparc  19 Feb 28 00:10 .pki

Any ideas? It looks like a trivial permissions error, but I can’t figure out why.

Hi Abhiram,

Just wanted to follow up and see if you were able to install successfully.
