- You may have a partially installed environment. Try `Pkg.instantiate()`

What’s a simple workaround?

EDIT: I tried deleting all VS Code-related directories on the file system and then trying again, and I also tried deleting the mentioned Manifest.toml. No luck.

Don’t use Julia nightly, or don’t use the language server… You are trying to use a combination that is not expected to work…

Not helpful, and BTW it usually works.

Dear, Davidanthoff !

I have read your tutorial (“use nightly build for fallback env”).
I try my best but I still do not understand how to apply your tutorial wisely.
Thanks for very much for reading this reply.
I really hope there will be a simple solution that I can understand
because I’m really stupid!

Currently,
because of language and skill limitations
I am improving them.
I wish that one day soon
I will have more contributions.

Sincerely grateful to Julia’s development team and supportive community.
