I was wondering whether the error was due to the metadata file I used.
I downloaded the file from the link: https://data.qiime2.org/2018.2/tutorials/moving-pictures/sample_metadata.tsv and it was saved as metadata.tsv.csv. The previous error occurred when uploading the metadata.tsv.csv file.
When I tried to trnsform it from .csv to .tsv format the following error occurred:
There was an issue with loading the file metadata1.tsv as metadata:
Found unrecognized ID column name ‘id,barcode-sequence,donkey,breed,year,month,day’ while searching for header. The first column name in the header defines the ID column, and must be one of these values:
Case-insensitive: ‘feature id’, ‘feature-id’, ‘featureid’, ‘id’, ‘sample id’, ‘sample-id’, ‘sampleid’
Case-sensitive: ‘#OTU ID’, ‘#OTUID’, ‘#Sample ID’, ‘#SampleID’, ‘sample_name’
There may be more errors present in the metadata file. To get a full report, sample/feature metadata files can be validated with Keemei: https://keemei.qiime2.org

I cannot detect where the error in the file is:
