I am not able to install QIIME2


I just started learning QIIME 2, and I am a complete beginner with minimum Linux exp. I was trying to install QIIME, and I keep on getting an errorr. I followed the instructions on https://docs.qiime2.org/2024.5/install/native/#miniconda

But, can someone help me clarify if the environment qiime2--2024.5 mentioned here in the link is just a placeholder and do I need to replace it with my environment when I am installing the various distributions?

Hi there,

Welcome to the :qiime2: Forum!

Yes, in qiime2-<distro>-2024.5 the <distro> part is a placeholder for the QIIME 2 distribution you are using. For example, if you are using the Amplicon Distribution, once you create the Conda environment the command for activating it would be:

conda activate qiime2-amplicon-2024.5
