Getting error when performing "diversity core-metrics-phylogenetic"

Hey there, I seem to get some python related error when I perform the following command. Any idea what can be the problem? I tried reinstalling qiime2 cleaning it from conda envs, without success, I get the same error only at this step. Any idea what is going wrong?

(I installed miniconda2, qiime2-2017.9 , Using Ubuntu 14.04)

(qiime2-2017.9) [email protected]:~/miniconda2/QIIME2/Amegut$ qiime diversity core-metrics-phylogenetic \
--i-phylogeny rooted-tree.qza \
--i-table table.qzv \
--p-sampling-depth 5000 \
--output-dir core-metrics-results

Hey @jgarneau,

Wow, that error message is super confusing. I’ve created an issue to clean that up.

Fortunately, what’s wrong is very simple to fix! You’ve passed in a visualization to --i-table (table.qzv; intended for human consumption) instead of an artifact (table.qza; intended for machine consumption).

Thanks!

This error has been cleaned up in QIIME 2 2018.2! Now the error will explain that it expected an artifact instead of a visualization.
