Anaconda3 will now be installed into this location: /home/ssirohi/anaconda3 - Press ENTER to confirm the location - Press CTRL-C to abort the installation - Or specify a different location below [/home/ssirohi/anaconda3] >>> /data/conda PREFIX=/data/conda Unpacking payload ...
At last it will provide installation summary as described below.
Preparing transaction: done Executing transaction: done installation finished. Do you wish the installer to initialize Anaconda3 by running conda init?

PyCharm for Anaconda is available at: https://www.anaconda.com/pycharm
Try connecting on new console, will show you conda environment PS1 status like below
But in case you are not able to find this on your machine, use below command to make it your environment.
conda config --set auto_activate_base true
You can also remove it with false variable options like below
conda config --set auto_activate_base false
Now we can see conda commands in your profile PATH to make it validate
(base) ssirohi@jarvis:~$ conda update conda Collecting package metadata (current_repodata.json): done Solving environment: done # All requested packages already installed.
In above command we tried to update conda package
We can also check conda info with below command.
(base) ssirohi@jarvis:~$ conda info active environment : base active env location : /data/conda shell level : 1 user config file : /home/ssirohi/.condarc populated config files : /home/ssirohi/.condarc conda version : 4.8.0 conda-build version : 3.18.9 python version : 3.7.4.final.0 virtual packages : __glibc=2.27 base environment : /data/conda (writable) channel URLs : https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/main/linux-64 https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/main/noarch https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/r/linux-64 https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/r/noarch package cache : /data/conda/pkgs /home/ssirohi/.conda/pkgs envs directories : /data/conda/envs /home/ssirohi/.conda/envs platform : linux-64 user-agent : conda/4.8.0 requests/2.22.0 CPython/3.7.4 Linux/4.15.0-72-generic ubuntu/18.04.3 glibc/2.27 UID:GID : 1000:1000 netrc file : None offline mode : False
Now in this environment my python is 3.7 as compared to normal one
(base) ssirohi@jarvis:~$ which python /data/conda/bin/python (base) ssirohi@jarvis:~$ python --version Python 3.7.4 (base) ssirohi@jarvis:~$
