Error while trying to install any packages

package

#1

Hi,
A while ago I tried to install Plots.jl and it failed because of some errors. After that whenever I try to install any package in julia, I’m getting this error.

julia> Pkg.install( "ZMQ" )
ERROR: fixed packages introduce conflicting requirements for Plots: 
         StatPlots requires versions [0.10.0,∞) [none of the available versions can satisfy this requirement]

My julia is v0.5.1

julia> versioninfo()

How can I fix this?

Use Julia v0.5.2. It includes the Pkg resolver hotfixes. It hasn’t been merged to the website yet, but you can find it here:
