How to make Jupter Notebook display installation progress updates when adding packages?

I recently installed IJulia for Julia v1.6.1, and now when I add a package, e.g. Pkg.add("DataFrames"), I don’t get any updates on the installation progress; there’s no message or output whatsoever. When I add a package to the Julia command line, I get installation updates like so:

julia> Pkg.add("DataFrames")
    Updating registry at `C:\Users\Michael\.julia\registries\General`
   Resolving package versions...
  No Changes to `C:\Users\Michael\.julia\environments\v1.6\Project.toml`
  No Changes to `C:\Users\Michael\.julia\environments\v1.6\Manifest.toml`

How can I get Jupyter Notebook to display these same installation updates?

Oh, I have a problem too, Pkg.status() doesn’t return anything, although it would be very nice to see what version of packages are downloaded by Pkg.

Hmm, so the issue with Pluto that you linked is the same as this Jupyter Notebook issue? And has the issue been resolved through a PR? And if so, do I need to download 1.6.1 again, or download a “nightly” version to get the fix?

I tried to link to this fix:

import Pkg; Pkg.DEFAULT_IO[] = stdout 

The real fix will be in Julia 1.6.2.


Thank you, this fixed it!
