Conda won't update on my mac because the environment is "inconsistent"

Hi, I’m trying to update to the latest version of Conda in my base environment in my mac. But I keep getting this error message:

The environment is inconsistent, please check the package plan carefully
The following packages are causing the inconsistency: [lists lots of packages]

What do you advise for proceeding?

My current conda is 4.12.0

Sometimes cached metadata can cause inconsistencies. Try clearing the Conda cache:

conda clean --all

If that doesn’t work, you can try to update each package separately to see which package is causing the issue. Packages that need to be updated are the ones listed in the error message.

If that also doesn’t work, One last thing you can try is to create a new environment to install the latest version of conda.
