PackagesNotFoundError: The following packages are not available from current channels:

I’m somewhat new to Data Science, I use Jupyter Notebook for my python code and a list of packages for my projects. Every time I come across a challenge I feel motivated to share it since I know someone else shares my shoe size. And this morning for the second time I came across this error ; PackagesNotFoundError : The following packages are not available from current channels: as I tried to install keras,pickle and nltk for my chat box mini project.

This is how it appeared;

(base) C:\Users\Mercy>conda install keras,pickle,nltk
Collecting package metadata (current_repodata.json): done
Solving environment: failed with initial frozen solve. Retrying with flexible solve.

PackagesNotFoundError: The following packages are not available from current channels:- keras,pickle,nltkCurrent channels:- https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/main/win-64

To search for alternate channels that may provide the conda package you're
looking for, navigate to
https://anaconda.organd use the search bar at the top of the page.

How I solved it using a few lines of command;

(base) C:\Users\Mercy>conda config — append channels keras(base) C:\Users\Mercy>conda config — append channels pickle(base) C:\Users\Mercy>conda config — append channels nltk

Then lastly review the list of packages you have to make sure the packages you needed are available for you.

(base) C:\Users\Mercy>conda list

Thanks for reading.
