Pkg.add("plots") doesn't work

I am a total beginner with julia and I’ve been trying to make some simple plots using the following commands:
import Pkg
using Pkg
but everytime I get the same msg:

Unsatisfiable requirements detected for package WebIO [0f1e0344]:

start a new environment.

  1. Create a new folder
  2. Change the directory in julia to that folder using cd from inside julia
  3. Activate a new environment with import Pkg; Pkg.activate(".")
  4. do Pkg.add("Plots")

Thank you very much, works perfectly!

You should do this before starting every project. If you use a global “namespace” for packages for the same project everywhere, you are bound to have lots of conflicts
