    I freshly installed miniconda3, and then downloaded the latest version of gatk (gatk-; from When I ran 'conda env create -n gatk -f gatkcondaenv.yml', I got nothing but incompatible package warnings as conda tried to resolve them. Ultimately, no environment was generated that I could access and the gatkpythonpackages package was not installed, confirmed through conda list.


    The version of miniconda I'm running does work on my computer, as I also run Phyluce from it, but do you have any suggestions as to how to fix this issue?
