q2-SCNIC Plugin [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'fastspar'

Hello,

I am trying to run q2-SCNIC. I installed it on Qiime 2 using the commands:
a) pip install scnic and
b) pip install git+https://github.com/lozuponelab/q2-SCNIC.git
Collecting git+https://github.com/lozuponelab/q2-SCNIC.git

The outcome was: Cloning GitHub - lozuponelab/q2-SCNIC: A QIIME2 plugin for running SCNIC to /tmp/pip-req-build-pg0n29av
Running command git clone --filter=blob:none -q GitHub - lozuponelab/q2-SCNIC: A QIIME2 plugin for running SCNIC /tmp/pip-req-build-pg0n29av
Resolved GitHub - lozuponelab/q2-SCNIC: A QIIME2 plugin for running SCNIC to commit f8566e777557eecbdbffdabef10a15fa1622bd18
Preparing metadata (setup.py) ... done

Then I run: qiime dev refresh-cache
The outcome was: QIIME is caching your current deployment for improved performance. This may take a few moments and should only happen once per deployment.

Finally, I run: qiime SCNIC sparcc-filter \

--i-table table-with-species.qza
--o-table-filtered table-with-species.filtered.qza

Saved FeatureTable[Frequency] to: table-with-species.filtered.qza

(qiime2-2021.11) [email protected]:~/Desktop/CheeseB$ qiime SCNIC calculate-correlations \

--i-table table-with-species.filtered.qza
--p-method sparcc
--o-correlation-table table-with-species.filtered_correls.qza

and I received:
Plugin error from SCNIC:

[Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'fastspar'

Debug info has been saved to /tmp/qiime2-q2cli-err-_e9imgpc.log

Is there a way to solve this issue?

Thanks,
Elena
