Yesterday I upgraded to ArcGIS Pro 2.2.3 from 2.2.0.  After doing the upgrade, i can no longer import the pandas library - neither within the Pro python interface nor other command line interpreters.  Prior to the upgrade i could import pandas just fine.


In Pro's Python Package Manager, pandas (version 0.23.3) is listed as an installed package - its listed twice.  I am unable to Uninstall pandas and no packages at all are listed in the 'Update Packages' dialog.


In my popwershell window (running with admin rights), i can enter propy and see the usual notification that i am running python 3.6.5.  at the prompt, i can import arcpy, import numpy, etc.  But if i try to import pandas, i get the following error message:


>>> import pandas

Traceback (most recent call last):

Any thoughts on what i need to do to be able to import pandas after the upgrade?
