Most likely, you are hitting the
Insert key on your keyboard by accident, and it is doing exactly what it is supposed to (as it does in most if not all other applications). I normally keep it disabled in my keyboard driver to prevent this occurring, but when I enabled it, it produced exactly the effect you describe.
conda install sip=4.19.8to see if it solves your problem
I did that command, and spyder wont, python broke, and i have the same error
That isn't what the screenshot's showing, if that's what you're referring to. The warning message there isn't germane, I don't think.
I reinstalled python, restarted anaconda, tried to start spyder. the editor launched, but the connection to the ipykernel failed.
Again, make absolutely sure you're launching in an environment with
ipykernel 4.8.2. Also, check in the preferences under Python interpreter that it is either set to the default, or to the
python.exe executable in such an environment. You can also just try launching Spyder in the
base env, since the dependencies should all be surely correct there unless you changed them since its the default Anaconda versions.
condawill tell you exactly what will be added, updated and removed before you confirm the changes and it executes them.
Did you check all three things I asked for? What were the exact results?
If none of that helps, its unclear what you mean by
I reinstalled python, restarted anaconda
But you should do a clean uninstall and reinstall of the latest Anaconda3 x64 if you haven't already done so. I don't know what's going on, but its very likely either something with your specific install or some sort of user error.
you mean the whole anaconda install ? but my py2 env is working
Only if you can't get it to work otherwise.
does it matter the order of installing packages and spyder into a new env ?
It shouldn't usually, so long as you do all of them around the same time.
Again, please check the above three things I've asked you to and report the results.
I got the error you had when launching a console, but only before downgrading ipykernel which fixed it.
conda create -n spyder-test python=3 activate spyder-test conda install spyder conda install ipykernel=4.8.2 spyder
conda create -n spyder-test python=3.6to avoid spyder-ide/spyder#7721 until Spyder 3.3.2 comes out which will fix it.
