I tried, in the same way as mentioned in previous post but still getting same error in my taxonomy.qza file

Hi @Priyanka,
How did you generate your taxonomy.qza?

If, its in qiime2 can you provide the command?

Can you run qiime tools validate on your artifact and provide the output of that?

Additionally, if you feel comfortable, would you please provide the taxonomy.qza so I could try to recreate this on my side?

I used qiime2 for taxonomy generation
Command used for it : "qiime feature-classifier classify-sklearn --i-classifier /home/bioinfo-premas/Documents/Priyanka/240131_M08920_0007_000000000-DN8CT/qiime2_analysis/V3-V4/V3-V4_classifier/silva138_AB_V3-V4_classifier.qza --i-reads rep-seqs-cr-0.97.qza --o-classification taxonomy.qza --p-n-jobs 8"

Please find taxonomy.qza here

Dear Collins,

It resolved by changing qiime version
