I would recommend using the community run conda-forge as one of your
default conda channels. They have a very slick largely automated system
to update recipes when upstream makes a release. The default Anaconda
channel from Anaconda, Inc. (formerly Continuum Analytics, Inc.) is
comparatively slow.

You may recognise some of the maintainers of the conda-forge numpy
recipe? https://github.com/conda-forge/numpy-feedstock/

I'm impressed to see 17 million conda-forge numpy downloads, vs
'just' 2.5 million downloads of the default channel's package:
