Plugin file not found while trying to Demux in QIIME 2019.4

Hello, I’ve been trying to run a demux through SLURM and I keep getting this error:

sbatch: error: spank: /usr/lib64/slurm/x11.so: Plugin file not found

This is the code I used:

#!/bin/bash

----------------SLURM Parameters----------------

#SBATCH -p normal
#SBATCH -n 1
#SBATCH --mem=24g
#SBATCH -N 1
#SBATCH --mail-user=email
#SBATCH --mail-type BEGIN,END,FAIL
#SBATCH -J Soildemux.sh
#SBATCH -D /home/labs/holscher_lab/marina
#SBATCH --time=240

----------------Load Modules--------------------

module load QIIME2/2019.4

----------------Commands------------------------

qiime demux emp-single
–i-seqs emp-single-end-sequences.qza
–m-barcodes-file SoilMetadata.txt
–m-barcodes-column BarcodeSequence
–p-no-golay-error-correction
–o-per-sample-sequences soildemux.qza
–o-error-correction-details soildemux-details.qza

Please help!

My command code does have the () at the end of every line so I dont think thats the problem!

Hi @Marinab2! This doesn’t appear to be related to QIIME 2, but rather, your cluster’s job submission system and/or computation environment. I suggest you check with your cluster sysadmin, first. Thanks!
