Using Anaconda on older operating systems

Anaconda recommends upgrading your operating system (OS) to the latest available or to one that is commonly used and supported. Most OSs that are no longer supported in the latest Anaconda distribution are no longer receiving security updates. Upgrading your OS allows you to get the latest packages, performance improvements, bug fixes, etc.

To use Anaconda on older operating systems, download from our archive. You will not be able to use conda to update or install packages beyond the Anaconda version noted in the table below, unless you limit it to versions available at the time that particular version of Anaconda was released. See what was available by checking the package table archives.
