q2-itsxpress bbmerge error 2

Good day to you Dr Rivers
I am a beginner with qiime2 and I am trying to analyse ITS 1 and 2 for a read from a sequencing facility (MRDNA USA). I have a paired-end-demux.qza file.
I followed this tutorial for my reads. I tried to trim the qza file and get this error message:

qiime itsxpress trim-pair-output-unmerged \

--i-per-sample-sequences demux-full.qza
--p-region ALL
--p-taxa F
--o-trimmed trimmed.qza
Plugin error from itsxpress:

Command '['bbmerge.sh', 'in=/tmp/qiime2-archive-21xz919x/8e2eaab4-8c65-44cf-abac-aa8b890c2c6d/data/101A_8_L001_R1_001.fastq.gz', 'in2=/tmp/qiime2-archive-21xz919x/8e2eaab4-8c65-44cf-abac-aa8b890c2c6d/data/101A_8_L001_R2_001.fastq.gz', 'out=/tmp/itsxpress_o0oh31fp/seq.fq.gz', 't=1', 'maxmismatches=40', 'maxratio=0.3']' returned non-zero exit status 1.

Can you please help with this?
Do I have to install bbmerge and HMMsearch on qiime2? How do I go about it?

Have you seen this topic, @bettya ? It looks very similar to your error, and might help get you on the right track before @Adam_Rivers gets a chance to look your question over. The :mag: search tool is mighty mighty! :muscle:

Side note - if you ever find yourself posting a question about an error message with a debugging logfile, please consider sharing that file's contents in your post. They're often useful in figuring out what's going on. :slight_smile:

I did tried all the suggestions in the searched topic, I still get the same error:

How do I get the error debug file on qiime2?
Please note that I am working with a virtual box and I am a beginner.
Can someone please help me with a step by step suggestion?

/tmp/qiime2-q2cli-err-lb1gyl7a.log is an absolute file path to the log file. Working from the command line, you can use any text editor to open it. e.g.
nano /tmp/qiime2-q2cli-err-lb1gyl7a.log


  • Temp files are usually removed automatically shortly after they are created. If you get a file not found error, try re-running the command and then opening it immediately.
  • VirtualBox may handle temp files differently than the systems I'm used to. If that doesn't work, you may have to google how to open a temp file in virtualbox, or even how to change where the guest operating system you're running (e.g. Ubuntu) saves temp files so that they don't get automatically removed.

Let us know how that goes!

Hi Chris
Just like you described. The error log file:

Thank you for your help.

Within your Qiime2 conda environment run

conda list

Anything named bbtools or bbmap should be removed with conda (assuming that was how it was installed)


conda remove bbmap

if present, also run

conda remove bbtools

Then reinstall the latest version of bbtools (under the package name bbmap)

conda install -c bioconda bbmap

Why this is happening:

It appears that newer versions of qiime2 are installing an older version of bbtools that is not compatible with Itsxpress. I need to test out installing Itsxpress on these newer versions and see if I can modify my bioconda manifest file in a way that is compatible with the new Qiime2 conda environment. There is a conflict with the way we specify dependencies.

There was a problem loading demux-full.qza as a QIIME 2 Result:

See above for debug info.

Still an error, kindly help.


Hi Dr Rivers

I am still waiting for your reply on my last post/reply.

Kindly reply.

Currently, itsxpress and q2-itsxpress are two packages, that will be changing in version 2 because it is confusing. You can make sure both are installed with these commands

conda install -c bioconda itsxpress
pip install q2-itsxpress

Thank you, Dr Rivers for your response.

I have errors again. This is the error and the error log:

I can see from there error log they it is still running too old a version of bbmerge, 38.18.

Maybe you have an old version of bbtools high in your Bash $PATH list?

Can you run conda list within the your qiime2 conda environment and paste in the output?

Also run which bbmerge.sh within your qiime2 environment to see where bbtools is.

Hi Dr Rivers
I am still for your reply.

Thanks and regards.


Hi @bettya !

Try: conda install -y -c bioconda bbmap==38.69 inside your conda environment.

Maybe it works with newer versions as well, but this is the version I used when I experienced the problem you describe.

Good luck with your research :slight_smile:

Thanks a bunch.
The merging command I believed required a lot of space as my VM did not come up for hours after performing the command.

It eventually worked after restarting and I have proceeded.

Thanks a million.
