Error message: Too many arguments

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I found the video really useful and clear. Thank you! And everything works fine until the very last instruction - "source deactivate pythonforjournalists" 

I get an ERROR message "too many arguments." A Google search suggests other people have the same issue but I haven't found a solution that I understand 😞 Can anybody here help me out?

Thanks

I'm really confused! When I ask conda for a list of environments, I get base and pythonforjournalists. The terminal tells me I'm in pythonforjournalists. But when I type source deactivate, I get an error message "could not find environment." In fact, it can't find either base or pythonforjournalists.

An earlier attempt to deactivate produced this:-

Usage: source deactivate

removes the 'bin' directory of the environment activated with 'source

activate' from PATH.

Should I give up??

Hi, I got the same problem on my computer (macOS Mojave) and solved by using the following command (found in the Anaconda documentation):

conda deactivate

 

Hope this helps.
