Can anyone solve q2-picrust2 plugin in the Qiime2-2018.11 version?


(Khak Nasheen) #1

Dear Sir,

I want to install the q2-picrust2 plugin in the Linux operating system having Qiime2-2018.11 version. However, I got errors after step 2. I have read similar topics in the qiime forum and followed the suggestions provided. However got the error. For the installation of q2-picrust2 plugin, I followed the website and completed the Step 1: ```
source activate qiime2-2018.11 and then step 2: conda install -c anaconda -c defaults -c conda-forge -c bioconda -c q2-fragment-insertion
qiime dev refresh-cache
I didn’t get any error for step 1 & Step 2. However, when I used the commands from setup 3,

cd picrust2-2.0.3-b
conda-env update -n qiime2-2018.11 -f picrust2-env.yaml
pip install --editable .

I got an error and the error is as follows;

I guess you do not have root privileges, for writing the file…

Dear Sir,

Any suggestions, I am running the setup from a server having Linux operating system.

Download the file via a browser…
Copy the file to /home directory (if you have access), else put it in any directory where you have access (Change the terminal to this directory)…
Skip the wget step, as you have already downloaded the file…
Start with unzip command…
This should work fine, I guess.

You may also face the same problem while installing the Plugin at “Step 5”…
Try to do the same thing…

Get the root password from Admin…
