Spyder is one of my favorite IDE(Integrated Development Environment) for Python programming and visualization. I came across Spyder while using Anaconda Navigator
What is Spyder?
Spyder is a free and open-source scientific environment written in Python, for Python, and designed by and for scientists, engineers, and data analysts. It features a unique combination of the advanced editing, analysis, debugging, and profiling functionality of a comprehensive development tool with the data exploration, interactive execution, deep inspection, and beautiful visualization capabilities of a scientific package.
What didn't work 🤔
Whenever I launch Spyder IDE, I get this prompt to upgrade the version to 5.x, and today, I decided to do that on my macOS. So, I started with the commands I am aware of
conda update spyder
Showed a couple of packages to update, hit
y, no luck :(
conda update conda
RemoveError: 'requests' is a dependency of conda and cannot be removed from conda's operating environment. RemoveError: 'setuptools' is a dependency of conda and cannot be removed from conda's operating environment.
So, tried with
conda update --force conda conda update anaconda
But, still no luck. I still see Spyder 4.x when I launch the IDE.
What worked 🎉
Here's for worked
conda update --all

If you observe, the Anaconda Navigator is getting updated as well.
Restart the navigator to see this
For me, the
Update application didn't work. So, I have to
Install specific version.
I hope this helps :)
If you see the below error
/opt/anaconda3/bin/pythonw: line 3: /opt/anaconda3/python.app/Contents/MacOS/python: No such file or directory
resolve it with
conda install --force python.app
P.S. I also use Pycharm IDE for Python programming
