I'm trying to import 102 standard, paired end fastq.gz files into the latest version in a MacOS environment. I've created my manifest file and I'm using the code below:
qiime tools import \
--type 'SampleData[SequencesWithQuality]’ \
--input-path manifest.tsv \
--output-path paired-end-demux.qza \
I get no error messages, everything appears to be running smoothly, but it never finishes. I've stopped and restarted is several times, let it run over night but nothing. When I check the activity monitor on my computer it appears that terminal is not using any CPUs either, regardless of if I just started the process or it's been several hours.
I re-ran some steps on an already analyzed dataset to make sure other parts of qiime2 were working and that ran perfectly fine.
I'm at a complete loss here.
