How to clean-install macOS Sonoma is explained here. However, there is an issue with the Sonoma 14.1 installer, and it gives an error message when asked to create a bootable USB stick. So, it seems that you need to download Sonoma 14.0 first, create a bootable USB stick from it, do a clean install, and update the OS to the latest version.
My Mac's Miniconda was old (version 4.11.0). There seemed to be a much newer version 22.11.1 available, but when I typed 'conda update -n base conda' in the terminal as instructed, the update didn't take effect (see the output below).

Get it, not a web browser, to open the URL ftp://emboss.open-bio.org/pub/EMBOSS/ and download the latest source package (version 6.6.0 as of November 4, 2022). Once you have downloaded and uncompressed the tar.gz file, open Terminal.app and […]
