Current_repodata.json Seems to be Missing From Anaconda Packages

I am seeking to update my Python version to 3.10. In the command prompt, when I run conda install python=3.10 I receive a CondaHTTPError: HTTP 000 CONNECTION FAILED for url https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/main/win-64/current_repodata.json. When I navigate to the directory https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/main/win-64/, however, it appears that current_repodata.json does not exist. There is a file entitled “repodata.json” that I imagine should be the target. Would anyone know if this is: 1.) an issue on the Anaconda end that requires updating the file names in the Anaconda win-64 directory, or 2.) an issue that I can fix locally by changing the file path that is called by ‘conda install python=3.10’ (and how?) or 3.) some other fix I haven’t considered? Thanks so much.

Conda info
conda version : 4.12.0
conda-build version : 3.21.6
python version : 3.9.7.final.0
virtual packages : __cuda=11.4=0
__win=0=0
__archspec=1=x86_64
platform : win-64
user-agent : conda/4.12.0 requests/2.26.0 CPython/3.9.7 Windows/10 Windows/10.0.19042

It may have been a temporary outage. I am able to resolve https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/main/win-64/current_repodata.json successfully even though it is not listed in the directory index.
Are you still seeing this problem?

Hi Crystal,
Thank you so much for your response! I honestly had not checked the full address before, but I can resolve it in my browser. That makes me think the issue might be related to the network configuration, so I’ll redouble efforts to solve the problem from our side.

Hi Crystal,

Just a quick update: it was an issue with our company’s firewall, and I have now been able to retrieve the package. Thank you again for looking into this question on my behalf.

Sincerely,

mbranham
