Hello, everyone, I'm having trouble installing PICRUSt on the latest version of QIIME2 on my MacBook with the new Apple M2 chip. I've already tried downgrading to an earlier version of QIIME2, but the plugin still isn't compatible (it says mach-o file, but is an incompatible architecture (have (arm64), need (x86_64)). Does anyone know if there is a way to install PICRUSt on the latest version of QIIME2 with the new Apple M2 chip? Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
no, there is no way to install it. The packages should be explicitly developed for different arches, and PICRUSt2 wasn't.
Thank you so much for your quick response.
Now it makes sense. I was getting that error message.
I have read that there is a way to install PICRUSt2 alone without QIIME2, I will try to do that, I will look for a tutorial or something. If someone knows, please let me know.
picrust2 has a nifty instruction on GitHub (Full pipeline script · picrust/picrust2 Wiki · GitHub).

From what I see on bioconda, it should work on arm64.
Thank you so much. I Installed PICRUSt2 as standalone, and it worked.
