Anaconda installation failed on MacOS Sonoma 14.1.1


I’m having problems with the installation of Anaconda on MacOS Sonoma 14.1.1.
I had Anaconda downloaded before but needed to uninstall it. Now I am unable to install it as it shows the error: “The installer encountered an error that caused the installation to failed. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance”. I got rid of all the Anaconda files everywhere, deleted Python, and redownloaded it and nothing seems to work.

I would appreciate every bit of help :slight_smile:

same problem . Mac OS 14.2

I also have the same problem. I had it installed. It told me it needed an update, couldn’t figure out how to do that. So I deleted it, then I tried installing again. I used the special
sudo rm -rf /opt/anaconda3 code to make sure there are no anaconda files left, and I tried installing again. Still gives the same error message.

Good Morning,

Thank you so much for contacting us, please open your Terminal on the Mac menu and launch these commands:

mkdir /Users/$USER/.config/

mkdir /Users/$USER/.config/fish/

touch /Users/$USER/ .bash_profile .tcshrc .xonshrc .zshrc

touch /Users/$USER/.config/fish/

sudo chown -R $USER ~/.bash_profile ~/.config/fish/ ~/.tcshrc ~/.xonshrc ~/.zshrc

Then proceed with the installation regardless of the output results.
Then you should be able to install Anaconda after a reboot, please let us know if that worked for you.
