Plugin error from feature-classifier: not enough values to unpack

Hi Everybody,

I have seen similar problems with the classifier on here before but couldn’t find any post of exactly I am working on to fix. Here my problem.

I am running qiime2-2017.10 and submitted the command qiime feature-classifier fit-classifier-naive-bayes. I should mention the extraction step involving the primer sequences went well, the feature data sequence was saved. Training the classifier seems to make problems:

ValueError: not enough values to unpack (expected 2, got 0)

Plugin error from feature-classifier:

** not enough values to unpack (expected 2, got 0)**

See above for debug info.

Does the error come from the reference sequence or the taxonomy file?

Any help would be really great as I am using the qiime2 pipeline for the first time!


Hi @steff1088, thanks for the question.

The command looks ok. Is it possible for you to post the ref-seqs_16SBV51_trunclen100.qza and ref-taxonomy_SILVA_16S_97_consensus.qza files so that I can debug?

Thanks for coming back to me so quick @BenKaehler. I figured this was not the right strategy for my analysis and am having already another question to a problem on that. Thank you!!
