Conda: conda update vs conda install

Last Updated: Oct 27, 2016 07:29PM CDT
"conda update" moves up to the latest compatible version, while "conda install" can be used to install any version. For example, if Python 2.7.7 is currently installed but the latest version of Python 2 is 2.7.12 and the latest version of Python 3 is 3.5.2, then "conda update python" will install Python 2.7.12, while "conda install python=3" will install Python 3.5.2. Conda uses the same rules for other packages, so "conda install" can always install the highest version, and "conda update" will always install the highest version with the same major version number.
