Importing Pandas gives error AttributeError: module 'pandas' has no attribute 'core' in iPython Notebook

I am running a iPython notebook via the Anaconda Navigator app (version 1.1.0).
When I want to import pandas it gives me a strange error. I thought the Anaconda app included the pandas package?

AttributeError: module 'pandas' has no attribute 'core'


Apparently the error I got when trying to import pandas for the first time was ValueError: unknown locale: UTF-8

Trying to import again afterwards, gave another error as described in my question above.

I found the solution to solve the ValueError on IPython Notebook locale error

After updating my bash profile, the error AttributeError: module 'pandas' has no attribute 'core' did not appear anymore.
