They'll need pyqt5:


When I had an account on a NASA HPC resource I found that it was generally
much easier to just have a conda environment in my home folder (or if that
got too big on a scratch disk). They do have pretty responsive help staff
but even with that it's still a lot of effort to get them to change or
update modules.
