I have been trying to update to Spyder 3.2.8, and I finally did by installing it first before updating to ArcGIS API for Python 1.4.1. However, now Spyder will not keeps crashing.


In a previous attempt, I tried to install ArcGIS API for Python 1.4.1 first, then install Spyder 3.2.8 via the Python Command Prompt with: 

conda install spyder

This said that it would need to downgrade the ArcGIS API for Python 1.4.1 to 1.2.5. It didn't work...


What is the deal? Spyder is a mission critical IDE for me as it is sometimes the only IDE that will work for syntax errors for arcpy in Python 3.


Dan Patterson, do you know what is going on? Why does the Python Package Manager seem to be so fickle? Can this be fixed ASAP please?


I think this may also have been an issue from a previous post of mine ArcGIS Pro 2.0 Python Manager Update Packages Not Working .
