I have run into an odd situation, where Anaconda repo page clearly states that the newest version of Blast in Bioconda channel is 2.7.1, however the version Conda wants to install (command
conda install -c bioconda blast) is 2.6.0.
Even specifying the version with command
conda install -c bioconda blast=2.7.1 does not work and Conda returns a
By observing the webpage mentioned above, one can see that there is a "v" before the version number, however adding this letter to the command with specified version did not help.
To make things even more odd,
conda search blast returns a list of Blast versions available and there is a 2.7.1 version available in Bioconda channel.
I have added the Bioconda channel into my Conda.
My question is: How can I install the 2.7.1 (by the time of writing this question the newest version available in Anaconda repo) through Conda?
Edit: I have Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS and Conda 4.5.11.
