Anaconda-Navigator stuck on 'Adding Featured Channels'

Running on MacBook Pro M1. New to coding and trying to learn but can’t get Anaconda to finish installing/opening first time. Tried running it for almost 2 whole days but never got past that step.


Can you please open a terminal window on your Mac and type the following:

anaconda-navigator --debug

Then paste the output from running this command below.

That might help debug the problem.

The other thing I suggest checking is your .condarc configuration file.
If that lists anything other than ‘- defaults’ in it, try removing those other entries and then restart Anaconda-Navigator.

Hope this helps.
