Hi, I keep getting an error that says my metadata file does not exist. This is the same file I used earlier as ‘sample metadata’ and it did work at that point. I am trying to work my data through the moving pictures tutorial, up until this point it has been working well but now I am a bit stuck… I have copied the commands I used below. Thank you for any help you might have!
(qiime2-2017.9) Kairis-MacBook-Pro:mwf_data_qiime_12_20_17 ruby$ qiime diversity core-metrics-phylogenetic \
Error: no such option: --m-metadata-file
Hi @ruby — that error message is actually saying that the command
qiime diversity core-metrics-phylogenetic doesn’t have a
--m-metadata-file option, not that it can’t find your metadata file. It looks like you are running QIIME 2 2017.9, but are referencing the docs for QIIME 2 2017.12. We added the option to provide metadata to this pipeline in 2017.10, which is why you are seeing this particular error.
You have two options - upgrade to QIIME 2 2017.12 (personally I would go with this option), or, use the dropdown on the docs site to pick 2017.9 as the version of the docs to reference. Hope that helps!
I am so sorry to bother you…I had just figured that out because of another comment. I did not realize that when I regularly update conda it had nothing to do with qiime changes
It is in the process now…Thank you for your help! (I am so new to all this!)
Hi @ruby! No need to apologize, we are all here to help each other out . Good luck and happy QIIMEing!
All is working! Yay! Thank you again!
