Plugin error from dada2 about Rcmdr

I'm having trouble with an error at the denoising step, so please let me know.

I used to be able to denoise with no problem.
Is it related to the fact that I downloaded ezR afterwards?

library(Rcmdr) でエラー: ‘Rcmdr’ という名前のパッケージはありません
This message means "There is no package called 'Rcmdr'" in Japanese,
so I deleted ezR and R then installed Rcmdr again but it dosen't work.

Hi @yokmok,

I'm not sure if the presence of ezR was the source of the issue - but I do wonder if there is something that was removed from your qiime2-2021.2 conda environment that may be impacting your success with dada2. Can you try installing the latest version of QIIME 2 and switch to that conda environment before attempting to run dada2 once more? Instructions for natively installing QIIME 2 can be found here, for your reference.

Hopefully this resolves the issue! :crossed_fingers:t3:


Thank you for reply.
I removed old version(qiime2-2021.2), then installed latest version (qiime2-2021.4) but the results and error messages were same.
Dose Rcmdr has anything to do with qiime2?
I didn't get this error in the beginning.
I'm in a lot of trouble.

Hi @yokmok,

Thanks for giving that a try!

It does not - I'm not too familiar with Rcmdr, but from my understanding it's just a GUI for the R programming language. How have you been running all of your QIIME 2 commands prior to this issue? Were you just using the QIIME 2 CLI? Any other recent changes to your machine, network, or server that you can think of?

Sorry for the late reply.
In the end, I removed R completely and it works fine now!
The problem was that it interfered when setting up a program called ezR, which is mainly used in Japan.
Thank you for your big effort.

@yokmok ah that's great news, so glad to hear it! :partying_face: Thanks for following up and closing the loop on this one!
