If you see something like this, the "error" is that AUR packages are not rebuilt when the system Python version is upgraded, which just happened again with 3.9. You need to manually upgrade each and every Python package from AUR, unfortunately. That is quite a caveat, because not everyone notices that something specific like Python is upgraded when they run pacman -Syu and see a list of 200 or more packages. This also happens with Node.js and what not.


So I have just bumped the package here as well as python-conda-build, which triggers updates with e.g. yay -Su. However, some dependencies may not have a new version now. What we could do for this case is to increase pkgrel for those other packages. It feels hacky, but at least it works.


I am sorry for the inconvenience. Now the remaining problem is: Because of the bunch of dependencies and dependencies of dependencies, it is easy to miss one of them. =) Secondly, I do not own all the dependencies, so some will need manual maintenance either way, unfortunately. For example, you will need to reinstall python-glob2-git. Please let us know here if anyone of you runs into issues and we will try to help.


To rebuild, you need to pass the --rebuild option.

Example: yay -S python-glob2-git --rebuild

@rafauke never mind, I will try to build it recently? seems harder than previously.

Hello @cyrevolt, I don't really want to maintain this package, apologies for the misunderstanding.

cyrevolt commented on 2023-08-28 14:11 (UTC)

I've added rafauke as another co-maintainer.

Hope that helps keeping this package more up to date. 🙂 They also file an orphan request. I will disown the package so they can take over. Good luck and thank you!

@specter119: Thanks a lot! So, sounds like there isn't much difference between this and miniconda3, in that case I prefer the one that's mostly updated... About micromamba-bin: Never heard of that before, I'll look a bit into that and see if I should try it out, thanks!

specter119 commented on 2023-03-02 04:43 (UTC)


updated, For miniconda3, it has a built-in(the base) env. For python-conda, only provides the conda binary. The base env is like the system python, which you can not modify.

BTW, I personally recommend trying the micromamba-bin currently. for mamba is a more powerful python env/lib manager based on conda's resources.

newsboost commented on 2023-03-01 13:22 (UTC)

Hi. Sorry, what's the difference between this and ? Both seem to provide conda - that confuses me... On the other hand, this package seems pretty dead since it hadn't been updated since October - 5 months...

Since that python-conda is providing /usr/bin/conda, could you please include

Update to python-setuptools 1:60.4.0-1 solves this issue.

huyz commented on 2022-05-13 05:07 (UTC)

A workaround of this issue is to edit /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/conda-4.12.0-py3.10.egg-info/requires.txt and remove the ruamel_yaml_conda>=0.11.14 line.

It seems that python-setuptools 1:60.0.0-1 breaks conda.

With python-setuptools 60.0.0 I got the following error:

Downgrade python-setuptools to 59.8.0 solves this issue.
