Qiime2-2017:10 QIIME 2 plugin 'diversity' has no action 'core-metrics-pylogenetic'

I am trying to do diversity analyses using qiime diversity core-metrics-phylogenetic. This used to work perfectly with 2017:9. I am getting “QIIME 2 plugin ‘diversity’ has no action ‘core-metrics-pylogenetic’” error message when I tried running it in 2017:10.

Could anyone help?

I found that the other diversity plugin “qiime diversity core-metrics” does all the core diversity metrics including the phylogenetic analysis (at least this was the case in 2017-9).

Hey @Jewelna_Osei-Poku,

It looks like your command has a typo, you want phylogenetic not pylogenetic.

@lvandiep, I think you might have the wrong version there, we renamed core-metrics to core-metrics-phylogenetic in 2017.9 (and used core-metrics for the non-phylogenetic version). But what you are saying is true for 2017.8

Yes, you are correct the version I was using was the 2017.8.

I noticed the typo in my command, and I have corrected it but, it is still not working. Has anyone managed to get it to work?

Hi @Jewelna_Osei-Poku!

In order for us to help you, can you please provide the following information:

  • What was the exact command you ran? Copy-and-paste please.

Hello Matthew,
I tried the command again and it seemed to have worked this time. No idea what was going wrong previously.

Thanks for the response all the same.

Hello! I have the same problem:

Hey @vjera,

Your installation is older than core-metrics-phylogenetic. As indicated earlier in this thread, you’ll need to install the latest release to see that action.

Hope that helps!
