Issue with PlotsRecipes dependency


I’ve been having issues installing various packages which have PlotsRecipes as a dependency. For this topic I took the code from my error when trying to install ProfileView.

At first I thought the package deprecation is probably related the “Package compatibility caps”

However, I tried it on two other machines and not received the same error which leads me to believe this is specific to my machine. (Also I don’t see any other issues here mentioning PlotRecipes)

All three machines are on the Version 1.0.0 (2018-08-08).

Could there be a setting on my end causing this? I saw the recommendation in “Package compatibility caps”, but for someone like me altering the code like that seems a bit intimidating. Since this issue is limited to only 1 of my machines, I assume that is not the issue though.

(v1.0) pkg> add ProfileView
  Updating registry at `C:\Users\cth\.julia\registries\General`

 Resolving package versions...
ERROR: Unsatisfiable requirements detected for package PlotRecipes [0e44f1d2]:

 └─restricted by julia compatibility requirements to versions: uninstalled — no versions left

FYI, the error if I try to install PlotRecipes directly is identical.


For reference should someone encounter this error in the future, I solved the issue by removing PlotRecipes.

remove PlotRecipes

I’m not really sure why this solved the issue. If someone can explain, it would be helpful to know for future reference.


I tried removing it but I just get the message

‘PlotRecipes’ not in project, ignoring
no changes.

I’ve tried thousands of things but still cant figure it out.
Im a newcomer to the language btw, and im using Juno
