I searched for the package 'snakemake' on my SLURM cluster using:
conda search --channel bioconda snakemake
and I get many versions, up to 5.4.2.
I then try to install it using:
conda install --channel bioconda --yes snakemake=5.4.2
but it fails with the following message:
PackagesNotFoundError: The following packages are not available from current channels: - snakemake Current channels: - https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/main/linux-64 - https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/main/noarch - https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/free/linux-64 - https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/free/noarch - https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/r/linux-64 - https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/r/noarch - https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/pro/linux-64 - https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/pro/noarch
Why is the bioconda channel not included in the current channels? I thought that was what the
--channel bioconda did in my install command.
conda install --channel bioconda --yes samtools=1.9 worked fine and installed samtools successfully.
