"Connecting to Console" runs forever Pycharm 2020.1.2


Hello! I have PyCharm Professional 2020.1.2. I work on a project which has the interpreter set to a virtual environment created with anaconda. I started working today as usual and then proceeded to run it, however, it always shows "connecting to console". The process never ends. I didn't do anything unusual in the program, I just tried to rerun the program which worked just fine yesterday. Any hints on what to do? I tried restarting PyCharm as well as the laptop, the error still persists.

I'd recommend trying our EAP build https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/nextversion/ as it may have some relevant fixes. You can have multiple PyCharm versions installed at the same time so you don't need to uninstall 2020.1.2.

If the problem is reproducible in EAP build, please report it to our issue tracker https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/PY attaching idea.log file from Help | Show Log in...
