I created a conda environment previously and it worked fine with python and tensorflow. At that stage I used anaconda.
On a fresh install I am using miniconda since I now understand the conda commands better. After installing python, packages like numpy and scipy (nothing exotic) and tensorflow I can run my previous simple neural network code. The package versions are all listed as compatible on the tensorflow site.
I also installed pillow from conda. It is visible using conda list, but python returns "No module named 'pillow'". My code to preprocess images no longer works so I need to fix this. So I'm trying to create a new environment to work in.
When I try to install python 3.8.0 in the new environment I get "An unexpected error has occurred. Conda has prepared the above report."
conda install python==3.8.0

Should I purge conda and start from scratch?
