simple error but i'm new so idk how to fix it

qiime tools import --type 'SampleData[PairedEndSequencesWithQuality]' --input-path importfile.txt --output-path demux.qza --input-format PairedEndFastqManifestPhred33V2
There was a problem importing importfile.txt:

importfile.txt is not a(n) PairedEndFastqManifestPhred33V2 file:

Filepath on line 1 and column "forward-absolute-filepath" could not be found (/home/aym/fq/SRR13060804_1.fastq.gz) for sample "SRR13060804".

how to fix?

Hi Ayman, if am not mistaken, i think your error here comes from from your input data type. Maybe you should carefully follow the documentation on (Importing data — QIIME 2 2021.4.0 documentation)
Best of Luck.

The error is that the file /home/aym/fq/SRR13060804_1.fastq.gz does not exist.
So double check that that path is correct.
