Hi @favaf,

Welcome to the :qiime2: forum! Thank you for going through the checklist so carefully!

I know filter-features-conditionally was added recently, so its possible its not in that qiime2 release. (I dont remember which version exactly.) You can check all the commands in the feature-table plugin by running

qiime feature-table

If the function isn't included in the plugin, you may need a later version.

Dear Justine,
yes, that might be the problem. When I run the help function on the feature-table command I did not find the option filter-features-conditionally.
I might try and see if it works when installing a more recent version.
My current version is qiime2-2020.8.
Thank you very much for your suggestion!
