error: QIIME 2 has no plugin/command named 'metadata'

I cannot visualize my results for some reason, i am getting this error:

error: QIIME 2 has no plugin/command named 'metadata'
my command was:
qiime metadata tabulate
--m-input-file output.taxonomy.qza
--o-visualization output.taxonomy.qzv.
The version of qiime is qiime2-2022.2.
Please, let me know how it could be fixed. Many thanks in advance!

Hey @Anastasia,

Welcome to the forum! Would you be able to give us the results of running:

qiime info

That will help us see what all is installed and then we can go from there.

Hey @Anastasia,

That's odd, your environment seems alright. Could you run:

qiime metadata --help

and see if that changes anything? I don't have a good reason to expect it would be different, but your command really shouldn't have given that error in the first place.

Hi @ebolyen ,
It actually did fix the issue! Thank you so much!
