Can't install keras

I've been unable to install keras inside of an anaconda env...

~$ pip install keras
pip install keras
Collecting keras
Collecting pyyaml (from keras)

I've tried some usual suspects

pip install --upgrade pip
pip install --upgrade setuptools


And I also tried most of the solutions here but still no luck.

As an aside, I can install keras fine when not in the conda env. Any help would be appreciated.

Answer

Thanks the support guys!

For whatever reason my conda env was stuck on setuptools-27 even after running

pip install --upgrade setuptools

However, running

pip install --upgrade setuptools --ignore-installed

Got my env up to setuptools-28.8.0 and I can now have no Keras issues
