Canopy is having difficulties updating packages, "AbortedOperationDetected"

I run Canopy version Version: 2.1.3.3542 (64 bit) on Windows 10.
Canopy cant manage to update any package, all results in the same

log output for a numpy update (for example):

Warming up...

AbortedOperationDetected: Aborted operation detected in environment 'User'


There is absolutly 0 results on google for this error code, so stackexchange is my last resort

It looks like a previous update was force-aborted, possibly leaving the environment corrupted. Assuming that you are using the standard installer, then it should suffice to

  • reboot your computer
  • temporarily disable your anti-virus software if possible (or at least disable its more intrusive / slow functionality, such as online checking each of the tens of thousands of package files that Canopy provides),
  • from the Canopy Tools menu, select Troubleshoot => Reset Python environment
