For sites with poor Internet connection,
conda install mypkg will fail and not resume a partially downloaded package.
These download resets can make installing larger Python packages like
opencv nearly impossible.
The errors include
CondaError: CondaHTTPError: HTTP 000 CONNECTION FAILED for url
Use that URL from the error message with
wget -c to download the package and install directly.
This example uses OpenCV 3.3 for Windows from conda-forge.
- From Cygwin or WSL:
wget -c https://conda.anaconda.org/conda-forge/win-64/opencv-3.3.0-py36_200.tar.bz2
- download interrupted: reissue that command to resume download.
- download stalls: press Ctrl C and then reissue that command to resume download.
- Install from the
conda install opencv-3.3.0-py36_200.tar.bz2
If the above method still does not work, I have found the pip install OpenCV
method to be robust for Windows with a 40 MB
