After installing the ShiftedArrays package I have observed that a bunch of the packages I have installed were downgraded (while some were upgraded).
Most egregiously was plots which reverted to 0.28.4 from 1.6.3
I am a little confused given that ShiftedArrays has no dependencies
Is there something I could do?
Uninstalling ShiftedArrays does not solve the problem and Plots is stuck at 0.28.4 now.
Only thing left to do was
rm -rf ~/.julia but I hope there is a better way.
Edit: related to this or this?
Yes, this can be confusing, you could rather do:
(@v1.6) pkg> add --preserve=all package
(@v1.6) pkg> ? add # to see other options
(@v1.6) pkg> add Plots@1.6.3 # a possible fix or partial fix, to revert to the version you had
I would want an option allowing at most updating other packages, while I suppose the idea is your package should still work with some of its dependencies downgraded…
Can you post the output of
Then, as suggested above, can you do
] add Plots@1.6.3
And post the output?
I will make sure next time I reproduce the bug. I had to go with the
rm -r ~/.julia route this time.
Maybe also worth looking at this
