Conda update Conda fails

ERROR conda.core.link:_execute_actions(339): An error occurred while installing package 'defaults::tqdm-4.32.1-py_0'.
CondaError: Cannot link a source that does not exist. C:\intelpython3\Scripts\conda.exe
Running `conda clean --packages` may resolve your problem.
Attempting to roll back.

conda clean --all --yes : does nothing

Quick googling showed this problem  was seen before when the install script removed conda, then tried to link tqdm, then tried conda install.  With this failing the link process.

Pretty new to python, so not sure how to hack install scripts any advice welcome.

More info:  This is off a fresh install of: w_pythoni3_p_2019.4.088

Trial  and error fix:

conda install tqdm -f

conda update conda worked after that.

This has generally been broken in the last two releases (2019 Updates 4 and 5).

This used to work:

  1. Extract Intel Python distribution ZIP file to C:\IntelPython3
  2. In that directory, type setup_intel_python.bat
  3. Scripts\Activate
  4. conda update conda
  5. conda install pyodbc pymssql sqlalchemy seaborn ipython xlrd xlwt openpyxl
  6. conda install spyder jupyter

Now, it consistently dies on step 4, and the later steps do not work at all.  Intel, please fix this.

My problem was solved by modifying this file:

C:\Users\pbusser\.condarc

proxy_servers:                                        <-- add if not there
  http: http://proxy-us.intel.com:911 ;        <-- add
  https: https://proxy-us.intel.com:912 ;    <-- add

channels:
  - intel
  - defaults

Yes, run "conda install tqdm -f" before running "conda update conda" , that did make fix the error.

Thanks Richard-Hardin!
