ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement torch>=1.6.0

Hello, this is my first post on the forums!

Ok so, I installed fastai and fastbook via Anaconda Prompt. And I am using the localhost to try and run the first notebook with Jupyter Notebook (on my own PC, Windows 10). I followed the Windows 10 installation steps from Jeremy (2018), but I do not understand what the problems are. When I use Google Colab, it doesn’t have this particular error, but it seems to take at least an hour to finish training, and, of course, it will timeout because I am AFK by then, and it doesn’t show the entire content of the notebooks, so I do not ever complete them. So, I am trying to run this on my computer with Anaconda/Jupyter instead of Google Colab. I realize I might need to do this on Linux distro to utilize GPU, but I also wasn’t sure if that was really still the case. Let me know if you guys have any tips or tricks for me. THANKS

Colab should not take a hour during training. Make sure you have gpu enabled by going to runtime - change runtime type - gpu.

Try adding this before you install fastbook

pip install --no-cache-dir torch==1.6.0+cu101 torchvision==0.7.0+cu101 -f

THANKS. Yeah, I’m seeing that was even mentioned on, I just totally assumed it was already running for some reason. I was using some kind of notebook at first that might’ve had it run by default.

Here’s the output using your suggestion on my end:
