Hi there @lizethcabrales,

It is possible that your PC is running out of RAM. To check that you can open your Task Manager if you are on Windows or Activity monitor if you are on Mac or run htop if you are on Linux.

If this is the case, what I could suggest is rather than running Conda on your PC, is to spin up a new Droplet and install Conda on there, that way it will not use your PC resources and you can connect to your server and use Conda over SSH.

To install Conda on a Droplet, you need to create a Droplet first:

After that SSH to that Droplet:

And then run the following commands to install Conda:

  • Download the installer script:
  1. wget
  • And then run the script:
  1. bash
