    many reasons, often due to issues with your setup or how NumPy was
    We have compiled some common reasons and troubleshooting tips at:
    Please note and check the following:
      * The Python version is: Python3.7 from "C:\Users\zhaosong\anaconda3\envs\ExampleEnv\python.exe"
      * The NumPy version is: "1.21.2"
    and make sure that they are the versions you expect.
    Please carefully study the documentation linked above for further help.
    Original error was: No module named 'numpy.core._multiarray_umath'

2. How To Fix The No Module Named ‘numpy.core._multiarray_umath’ Error.

  1. I found my current used anaconda version is 2.0, and the latest anaconda version is  2.1.
  2. So I remove the anaconda version 2.0 from my PC.
  3. And download and install the latest anaconda version.
  4. I create a new virtual python environment in the anaconda environments and install the required python libraries in the anaconda ( How To Install/Uninstall Python Packages In Anaconda Virtual Environment Successfully  ).
  5. And then apply the new anaconda virtual python environment as the Eclipse Pydev project python interpreter ( How To Change Python Interpreter In Eclipse Pydev Project To Use Different Python Virtual Environment Library ).
  6. Now when I run the example python code, the error is fixed.
  7. This is the easiest way to fix this error.
