Installing PyMC on Ubuntu 20.04

I am trying to install PyMC on my Ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit). I tried using conda install -c conda-forge pymc, which ran without any errors, but when I try running import pymc to check my installation, it throws the following error :

ImportError: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/liblapack.so.3: undefined symbol: ATL_dgeset

I don’t know how to rectify this at this point. Any help would be great!

Can you show what the output of conda list is?

Actually, can you show the entire error message you are getting?

Here it is :

Hi, it seems that you have installed an old version of pymc (2.3.8 and 3.11.4). You can create a conda environment with the latest PyMC v4 using conda install -c conda-forge "pymc>=4.0.0" or using these follow commands to create a new fresh environment with mamba:

conda create --name pymc4 -c conda-forge python=3.9
conda activate pymc4
conda install -c conda-forge mamba
mamba install -c conda-forge "pymc>=4.0.0"
