I just started working with qiime2. I was able to format the data into a .qza format succesfully. However, when I try to use the ‘qiime feature-table summarize’ function I get the following error about my metadata file:
"There was an issue with loading the file bee_metadata-test.tsv as metadata:
Metadata file path doesn’t exist, or the path points to something other than a file. Please check that the path exists, has read permissions, and points to a regular file (not a directory): bee_metadata-test.tsv
There may be more errors present in the metadata file. To get a full report, sample/feature metadata files can be validated with Keemei: https://keemei.qiime2.org
Find details on QIIME 2 metadata requirements here: https://docs.qiime2.org/2018.4/tutorials/metadata/"
I already checked the metadata file in Keemei, and it reports no errors. I am sure I am using a file not a directory. Are there any other potential sources linked to this error.
Thanks in advance!
PS. I was unable to upload th metadata file, but I am happy to send it some other way in case that is helpful solving this problem.
