I have been using anaconda for more that a year, until recently I started getting SSL errors and Anaconda became completely unusable for me.
This is the error I get:
CondaSSLError: Encountered an SSL error. Most likely a certificate verification issue.
Exception: [SSL: DECRYPTION_FAILED_OR_BAD_RECORD_MAC] decryption failed or bad record mac (_ssl.c:2580)
It happens when I try to install, package, update anything or sometimes even create a venv. I tried EVERY solution on internet, uninstalled Python and Anaconda completely and reinstalled, disabled SSL verification, switched networks, checked proxies, copied 2 files in anaconda directory (many said this was a solution), etc. NOTHING worked.
There must be an explanation and therefore a solution, but I cannot find it. Please, I beg you conda pros, let me know what is the last thing I can try before I give up?
