Update anaconda failed: entry point not found

I recently attempted to update my Anaconda environment to its latest version and encountered an error. After opening the environment as an administrator, I used the following commands:

conda update conda
conda update anaconda

The first command executed successfully, whereas the second command produced the following error:

pythonw.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point ?PyWinObject_FromULARGE_INTEGER@@YAPEAU_object@@AEAT_ULARGE_INTEGER@@@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library c:\ProgramData\Anaconda3\pythoncom37.dll

Error message

According to this StackOverflow answer, I need to copy the file libssl-1-1-x64.dll from Anaconda3/Library/bin to Anaconda3/DLLs. However, I cannot find the file in the source location. Is there a command I can use to download this file, or a safe online location from which I can download it?

You can try running the following command to download the missing file:

conda install openssl

This should download the libssl-1-1-x64.dll file and place it in the appropriate location.
