I've just installed fresh ArcGIS pRO 2.8.0 and when I try to clone the default environment (with command conda create --clone=arcgispro-py3 -p "C:\deeplearningenv" )  I get this this error:

ERROR An error occurred while installing package 'esri::arcgis-1.8.5-py37_1783'.

If you are just trying to install deep learning libraries in your environment then you can directly use an installer from here You do not need to clone the environment in that case. However your environment cloning is failing due to some other reason. I recommend you to close all instances of ArcGIS Pro and Python command Prompt before doing so.

@SandeepKumar1, this is not a solution to the underlying problem. I am also experiencing this issue with ArcGIS Pro 2.8.1 when trying to clone the default arcgispro-py3 conda environment. Can esri provide an actual solution to this bug?


conda create --clone arcgispro-py3 --name arcgispro-py3-clone
# ERROR An error occurred while installing package 'esri::arcgis-1.8.5-py37_1783'.

@SandeepKumar1 I am also unable to clone the default conda environment after an installation of  ArcGIS Pro 2.8.1. A solution would be welcome.

I'm using 2.9.3 and also experiencing an issue cloning the default environment.  The dialog won't go away after clicking OK a half hour ago.  The list of errors I see when hovering over the octagonal exclamation point icon are long and extensive.  Most of the errors mention jupyter in some capacity.  I am unable to select and copy the text from the pop-up window for posting it with details here.
