Getting error why creating mflix env

Hi, I am getting below error while creating conda mflix environment. I was able to create this environment and complete the pytest -m connection module. Also, I have passed pytest -m projection but when I tried to run python, I got some error (don’t exactly rememeber). So I thought of recreating the environment again and deactivated it. Got below error while creating now

C:\Users\samni\mflix-python>conda create --name mflix python=3
WARNING: A directory already exists at the target location ‘C:\Users\samni\Anaconda3\envs\mflix’
but it is not a conda environment.
Continue creating environment (y/[n])? y

Collecting package metadata (current_repodata.json): failed

NotWritableError: The current user does not have write permissions to a required path.
path: C:\Users\samni\Anaconda3\pkgs\cache\9b8cd901.json

Kindly help.


Hi @Nikhil_Jain1,

Could you try deleting the olde mflix directory before creating a new environment and see if it resolves the issue ?
