I have been trying to get jupyter notebook to launch from the anaconda navigator and the terminal and it will not load. I can start it just fine using the terminal or the navigator but when it opens up on my browser all that I get is a landing page as below:

The terminal out put after executing the jupyter notebook command is included below. Any help would be appreciated. I have tried uninstalling and re installing anaconda as well as uninstalling and re installing the jupyter notebook package but neither has resolved the issue.

    To access the notebook, open this file in a browser:
    Or copy and paste one of these URLs:

    @muffin - have you tried using the http:// URL, instead of the file:// URL?

  • Please run $ ss -lt after you started jupyter and append its output to your question.

  • At second glance, I noticed that the URL you entered inside the browser is different from the URL jupyer told you to open (...6247-open.html vs. ...7406-open.html). Please try again with the right URL.

  • I'm curious about the "port in use" message. Is there another instance of jupyter running, or some other program using that port? Perhaps restarting the machine might work. Or you can specify a different port with jupyter notebook --port=8889 As dirdi said, watch out for that filename as it changes every time you relaunch jupyter.

You may try using

jupyter notebook --ip= --port=8888

Please post feedback.
