Hi Wolfram,

Sorry for the issue, are you using a recent build of CCTBX? Can you try
these steps?

1) cd <CCTBX directory>
2) rm -fr conda_base
3) python modules/cctbx_project/libtbx/auto_build/bootstrap.py base
--builder=phenix --use-conda

It basically recreates the dependencies directory. It's using conda, so it
should take less than 5 minutes. If you are using conda, you will need
conda version 4.4 or greater.

Let me know if that doesn't solve the problem. Thanks!
