Description

When trying to install ctools using conda in a Python 2.7 environment it fetches an old ctools version (1.6.1):

$ conda create -n myenv python=2.7
$ conda activate myenv
$ conda install ctools 
The following packages will be downloaded:

Changing the order of the channels by specifying the channel with --add does not solve the issue:

$ conda config --remove channels conda-forge
$ conda config --remove channels cta-observatory
$ conda config --add channels conda-forge
$ conda config --add channels cta-observatory

This issue seems to be described here: https://github.com/conda/conda/issues/2011.

Issue also described here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/60973724/why-does-conda-not-install-the-most-recent-version-of-spyder-from-conda-forge. I’m wondering where the only solution is to remove ctools 1.6.1 (and probably older) from Anaconda.

An alternative would be to build the old GammaLib packages again with the cfitsio version fixed, which includes
  • 1.4.3
  • 1.5.0
  • 1.5.1
  • 1.5.2
  • 1.5.3
  • 1.5.4
  • 1.6.0
  • 1.6.1

#5 Updated by Knödlseder Jürgen over 1 year ago

This approach works as uploading a new package 1.6.1 with the cfitsio version fixed to 3.430 bumps the problem down to gammalib version 1.6.0. I will continue with that strategy.

I also needed to fix the conda readline version to 7.0.

#7 Updated by Knödlseder Jürgen over 1 year ago

  • % Done changed from 30 to 50

I updated all packages prior to version 1.6.2, fixing the cfitsio and readline version numbers. Now need to check whether installation always provides the latest package version on all supported Python versions.

#8 Updated by Knödlseder Jürgen over 1 year ago

  • % Done changed from 50 to 90

I checked the proper installation of ctools version 1.7.3 using

conda install ctools
including testing of ctools and GammaLib for Python 2.7, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8. Everything works fine now. Note that Python 3.9 is not yet supported for ctools 1.7.3.

#9 Updated by Knödlseder Jürgen over 1 year ago

  • Status changed from In Progress to Closed
  • % Done changed from 90 to 100

I did the same checks for the gammalib package alone. Everything seems to work. Close the issue now.
