Anaconda is growing in popularity for managing python packages and versions across different environments. Anaconda version (from different packagers) comes with some prepackaged libraries.
Sometimes, they libraries may have install order dependencies. One such dependency I have noticed is in matplotlib and cycler packages.
I recently installed an anaconda package. Every time I tried to import matplotlib, I would receive an error “ImportError: No module named ‘cycler’ “. I checked the versions of packages installed to look for any dependency based issues. But both had compatible versions. To remediate this, I reinstalled matplotlib package and the issue was still there. Finally I reinstalled cycler and followed by fresh installation matplotlib (with compatible kiwisolver) to fix the issue.
