I’m trying to use conda to set up a virtual environment for tensorflow. When I try and do so
this error appears (this is in the anaconda powershell prompt)
Collecting package metadata (current_repodata.json): failed
CondaSSLError: OpenSSL appears to be unavailable on this machine. OpenSSL is required to
download and install packages.
Exception: HTTPSConnectionPool(host=‘repo.anaconda.com’, port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /pkgs/main/win-64/current_repodata.json (Caused by SSLError(“Can’t connect to HTTPS URL because the SSL module is not available.”))
I have since installed openssl but the same error still appears.
In terminal when I type “openssl version” this error appears
7804:error:02001005:system library:fopen:Input/output error:bss_file.c:175:fopen(‘C:\OpenSSL\bin’,‘rb’)
7804:error:2006D002:BIO routines:BIO_new_file:system lib:bss_file.c:184:
7804:error:0E078002:configuration file routines:DEF_LOAD:system lib:conf_def.c:197:
so far I’ve looked at changing path system variables, permissions of openssl files, uninstalling and re-installing openssl.
I don’t think there’s an issue with conda so I haven’t uninstalled and re-installed that. Could anyone help? Thank you
