shell - remove - The environment is inconsistent, please check the package plan carefully
install anaconda (4)
Given a situation like the following,
> conda update -c intel --all Collecting package metadata: done Solving environment: | The environment is inconsistent, please check the package plan carefully The following packages are causing the inconsistency: - intel/win-64::ipython==6.3.1=py36_3 - intel/win-64::prompt_toolkit==1.0.15=py36_2 done
As mentioned in other answers, the idea is to have some sort of re-
ation to occur for the inconsistent packages.
Thus, with a few copy-&-paste's, you could:
> conda install intel/win-64::ipython==6.3.1=py36_3 Collecting package metadata: done Solving environment: / The environment is inconsistent, please check the package plan carefully The following packages are causing the inconsistency: - intel/win-64::ipython==6.3.1=py36_3 - intel/win-64::prompt_toolkit==1.0.15=py36_2 done ## Package Plan ## environment location: c:\conda added / updated specs: - ipython The following NEW packages will be INSTALLED: jedi intel/win-64::jedi-0.12.0-py36_2 parso intel/win-64::parso-0.2.0-py36_2 pygments intel/win-64::pygments-2.2.0-py36_5 wcwidth intel/win-64::wcwidth-0.1.7-py36_6 Proceed ([y]/n)? y Preparing transaction: done Verifying transaction: done Executing transaction: done
(and you would have to repeat for all the packages)
Alternatively, cook up an (ugly) one-liner (this should work for Windows as well as other platforms)
Note : by "ORIGINAL_COMMAND", I'm referring to any command that gives you the error message (without any other side-effects, ideally)
<ORIGINAL_COMMAND> 2>&1 | python -c "import sys,re,conda.cli; conda.cli.main('conda','install','-y',*re.findall(r'^\s*-\s*(\S+)$',sys.stdin.read(),re.MULTILINE))"
Expanding the above one-liner:
from re import findall, MULTILINE from sys import stdin from conda.cli import main main( "conda", "install", "-y", "--force", # Maybe add a '--force'/'--force-reinstall' (I didn't add it for the one-liner above) *findall(r"^\s*-\s*(\S+)$", stdin.read(), MULTILINE) # Here are the offenders )
I tried to update or install new packages from anaconda and lately, this message has appeared:
The environment is inconsistent, please check the package plan carefully The following package are causing the inconsistency: - defaults/win-32::anaconda==5.3.1=py37_0 done
I tried with
conda clean --all
conda update --all
but it persists.

Had this same problem and none of the other solutions worked for me. Ended up having to uninstall and reinstall conda, then reinstall all of my libraries.
conda install -c anaconda anaconda
did the trick for me. For my setup, I need to specify the channel otherwise it would not work. After running the command in the terminal, I was prompted to update a list of packages that was found to be inconsistent. Without this step, I was not able to install or update any packages with
conda install <package_name>
conda update <package_name
The inconsistencies are caused due to different versions of the pacakages, and their clashing dependencies.
conda update --all
This command updates all the packages, and then conda solves the inconsistency on its own.
