Cannot upgrade Python with Conda Package Manager on Ubuntu 22.04

I have installed oneAPI with AI toolkits and work mainly in Fortran combined with Python. In the Conda base environment I could update Python to version=5.4.3 but when I select the intelenv it shows that an update is available but nothings happen when I update.

I have done the following from ~/anaconda3/bin

conda init

anaconda-navigator

and then in the navigator selected the intelenv, etc

 

When I try the terminal the following happens

steph@+++++:$ conda update anaconda

PackageNotInstalledError: Package is not installed in prefix.
prefix: /opt/intel/oneapi/intelpython/latest
package name: anaconda

steph@+++++:$

 

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Please see result below, to confirm; I use Ubuntu 22.03 LTS, the first batch of feedback is what is loaded per session, then the command and the feedback. Because Intel is by default installed in /opt administrative rights (i.e. SUDO) is required. When SUDO is used the local rights are overridden, or at least it is my understanding.

 

thanks for

After installing the oneAPI AI Toolkits, If you need to update or install packages to the Intel environment consider cloning them to a separate environment first. This separation helps manage dependencies and avoids conflicts with existing installations. You can then make changes and test them in the cloned environment.

 

Also, the tools in the oneAPI toolkits are configured via environment variables. Set up your environment by sourcing the setvars script. You can find the setvars.sh script in the root folder of your oneAPI installation, which is typically /opt/intel/oneapi/

Hi, could you please confirm whether the approach of making changes and testing them in the cloned environment worked for you?

No, I am not really sure what to do with cloning. I have already shown in one of my previous posts how the variables are set/sourced automatically through .bash.rc, again shown below for convenience.

Hi, thanks for replying, according to your issue you were successfully able to update Python in the Conda base environment however it was not updated within the intel environment. Please correct, if my understanding is incorrect.

Hi bresj,


There might not be write permissions for the pre-installed environments hence you could face this issue "EnvironmentNotWritableError".


These are a few commands to create new environments in the user directory so that you can install any other packages without any issues. This is a workaround for intel-aikit-pytorch environment.

 

Step 1: Clone the pre-install environment in a separate environment.

conda create -n aikit-pt -c intel intel-aikit-pytorch


Step 2: Activate the respective environment.

conda activate aikit-pt


Step 3: Update

conda update --all

 

Similarly, you can work with other pre-installed, environments.

 Thank you, noted and thanks for your assistance, the cloning didn't work. If I do find a solution I'll post it.
