Hello Anaconda Community,
I’m experiencing an issue with Anaconda when trying to create a new conda environment. I’ve recently installed Anaconda, and I’m running into SSL certificate verification problems that prevent me from creating environments or downloading packages.
Here’s the error message I’m encountering:
CondaSSLError: Encountered an SSL error. Most likely a certificate verification issue.
Exception: HTTPSConnectionPool(host=‘repo.anaconda.com’, port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /pkgs/main/win-64/current_repodata.json (Caused by SSLError(SSLCertVerificationError(1, ‘[SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed: unable to get local issuer certificate (_ssl.c:1129)’)))
I have tried to address this issue by downloading a certifi.pem file and pointing Anaconda to it, but the problem persists.
I’m using Anaconda on a Windows system, and I would appreciate any guidance or suggestions on how to resolve this SSL certificate verification error so that I can create and manage conda environments without issues.
Thank you in advance for your help!
