[yt-users] miniconda installation issue

I have encountered a problem when installing yt using the miniconda 
python distribution on a remote host. After downloading and installing 
various packages, the installation process gets stuck here (see also 
attached log file):

   /home/h/hzfbhsws/yt-conda/bin/conda install -c conda-forge --yes yt
Fetching package metadata ...........
Solving package specifications: .

CondaError: CondaHTTPError: HTTP None None for url 
Elapsed: None

Indeed when I try


on the host on which I have been running the installation, the following 
error message is thrown:

Connecting to s3.amazonaws.com||:443... failed: No route to 

On the local host (i.e. my PC), there is no problem with downloading the 
conda-env package with wget:

Saving to: ‘conda-env-2.6.0-0.tar.bz2’

2017-03-28 12:18:08 (37,9 MB/s) - ‘conda-env-2.6.0-0.tar.bz2’ saved 

Maybe the problem is related to port 443 on the host on which I want to 
install yt.

In any case, how can I circumvent this? I can put the required package 
into the yt-conda/pkgs directory, but I haven't figured out how to tell 
the installation script to use the existing file rather than attempting 
to download it.

Best regards,
