In my development Anaconda environment, I faced similar issues related to setup, I too observed alike issues asking by peoples in big open forums, I suggested the below approach where they respond back it's working for them.
There are many causes related too Setup.py but I would suggest you the common approach to resolve. It usually comes when your Anaconda environment owning an older version of Setup tools. I would recommend to upgrade your setup tools and conda or pip based on the usage. Whenever we are using the Anaconda environment after a long period, it's always advisable to use latest and greatest python setuptools and conda or pip versions.
Hopefully it will resolve your issue.
