This happens because matplotlib 2 is not compatible with the
last release of PDFgui. This has been declared in package dependencies
for PDFgui 1.1.2, but Anaconda seems to pick an earlier version
1.1.1 to keep the last matplotlib.
For now the solution is to explicitly request PDFgui 1.1.2
conda install -c diffpy "diffpy.pdfgui>=1.1.2"
This should downgrade matplotlib to version 1.x, which
will restore plotting functions.
The incompatibility with matplotlib 2 has been fixed in
PDFgui code repository. I will try to prepare an update
release soon to fix the installation problem.
