False conflict in glibc version?

cn flag

Trying to install torch over conda, on Ubuntu 18.04, I get:

Package pytorch-mutex conflicts for:
cpuonly -> pytorch-mutex==1.0=cpu
torchvision -> pytorch-mutex==1.0[build='cuda|cpu']The following specifications were found to be incompatible with your system:

  - feature:/linux-64::__glibc==2.27=0
  - feature:|@/linux-64::__glibc==2.27=0
  - pytorch==1.4 -> libgcc-ng[version='>=7.3.0'] -> __glibc[version='>=2.17']
  - torchvision -> __glibc[version='>=2.17,<3.0.a0']
  - torchvision -> libgcc-ng[version='>=11.2.0'] -> __glibc[version='>=2.17']

Your installed version is: 2.27

It seems the glibc version (2.27) does match all listed constraints. What conflict is the installation talking about?

Not maybe a fix to your problem but it might be. Ubuntu 18.04 goes EOL at the end of May so now might be a good time to upgrade. The software you are install may work well on a newer version of Ubuntu.

Then pass this on to whom ever may care.
I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
