Please deactivate this port first, or use 'port -f activate py310-jupyter' to force the activation.

Force-activating ports is not recommended.

You should probably wait for the maintainer of the port to resolve the conflict, which I see you have reported at Or anyone else can feel free to solve it and submit a pull request.
