I just updated to OSX 12.5. Typing command "Jupyter notebook" now gives error

osascript: OpenScripting.framework - scripting addition "/Users/axl/Library/ScriptingAdditions/YouHelper.osax" cannot be used with the current OS because it has no OSAXHandlers entry in its Info.plist.
0:42: execution error: "http://localhost:8888/tree" doesn’t understand the “open location” message. (-1708)

Same error when launching from navigator GUI.

"Spyder" works fine; "Jupyter qtconsole" is ok.

Also get weird errors trying "anaconda-navigator", and "conda -h" from command line.


in case it was related, but that doesn't help

I can't spot the pattern for why it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, but cut-and-paste of the URL into your favorite browser should always work.  This has been identified as a bug in macOS that Apple needs to address.  Anything else is a workaround.  It isn't Python, Jupyter, or Anaconda's fault.

ahh.. I see. The Jupyter process is running, so I just put the "localhost" address into the browser. Many thanks.

This solves the Jupyter problem, which was worry number one. But conda commands don't work either. For example "conda info" results in

I realise they are not necessarily connected.. just started with the same update

Yeah, that is super weird.  I've never seen that before.  I'd suggest two courses of action:

1. report it as an issue to https://github.com/ContinuumIO/anaconda-issues/issues/new

2. from the CLI execute `conda update conda` and if that fails then try `conda install -f conda`,

And try again and see what happens.  I don't know what that ctypes error is -- it's standard library, so I'm not super confident that this will fix things for you.  You could try this:

3. `conda install -f python=2.7`

OK, I tried all three of those commands and the same errors came back... I will report as you suggest
