Hi all, I’m having some trouble upgrading Python from 3.7.11 to 3.8. I’ve been following the steps from Install conda, pip or apt packages — The Littlest JupyterHub v0.1 documentation exactly, and the process seems to complete, but there is no change to the Python version - I’m still on 3.7.11. I’ve done some Googling around and most of the recommendations are to create a new Conda environment, but I don’t think that’s what I actually want here.
This is what happens in the process.
Collecting package metadata (current_repodata.json): done Solving environment: failed with initial frozen solve. Retrying with flexible solve. Solving environment: failed with repodata from current_repodata.json, will retry with next repodata source. Collecting package metadata (repodata.json): done Solving environment: failed with initial frozen solve. Retrying with flexible solve. Solving environment: | Found conflicts! Looking for incompatible packages. This can take several minutes. Press CTRL-C to abort. Examining conflict for <long list of package names>
Finally, it prints out a huge list of conflicts and tells me: “Your installed version is: 2.27”. The output of
which python is /opt/tljh/user/bin/python and
python -V remains at 3.7.11.
Can anyone give me any guidance as to what’s happening here and how I can resolve to get 3.8 installed?
