post-link script failed for package intelpython-2017.0.0-5

Jump to solution

conda create -n idp intelpython3_full python=3

ERROR conda.core.link:_execute_actions(319): An error occurred while installing package 'intel::intelpython-2017.0.0-5'.
LinkError: post-link script failed for package intel::intelpython-2017.0.0-5
running your command again with `-v` will provide additional information
location of failed script: /home/<user>/anaconda3/envs/idp/bin/.intelpython-post-link.sh

I first updated conda as suggested, using Anaconda 4.3 (conda 4.3.8 --> 4.3.9). I can't downgrade this to the troubleshooting-suggested 4.1.11.

Should I scrap Anaconda 4.3 and use 4.2 for better compatibility?

Thanks
G.

This is how I tried as a quick fix. It works under macOS X; not sure about other systems though.

First, if you have conda version 4.3.9-py36, downgrade it to 4.3.8.

conda install conda=4.3.8

Next remove completely the failed installation. 

conda remove -n idp --all

Then re-install the Intel Distribution of Python using

conda create -n idp intelpython3_full python=3

You will likely see a UserWarning, but not an Error in post link script. If it's successful, then you can upgrade conda to the latest version.

conda upgrade conda

Thanks a ton for the quick answer. It worked!

Glad I hadn't to scrap Anaconda 4.3. Despite the idp's removal the new install was so quick that I could hardly believe, but it seems to be complete and work.
