What do you mean "it looks like the installation process will never stop"? What is it doing? It could be there is a bug in the dependency resolution causing it to rebuild dependencies that it shouldn't. But even if that's the case just let it run its course.

Hi @Iguananaut

Until how many make builds ? i add the picture in the first message with more than 1000, but I currently see more than 3500. Moreover I tried with re-installing SageMath with admin rights, and I got the same problem.

@sandy_scott gave a workaround to this pb: see the post , Installing optional packages - infinite loop

sage -i fricas is ok now in W10 with his solution with Ubuntu WSL
