Songbird: having troubles with formatting of metadata for Songbird.

I got the following error message:
Plugin error from songbird: 'DataFrame' object has no attribute 'to_dense' Debug info has been saved to /tmp/qiime2-q2cli-err-m41giqj2.log

I assume it is a problem of metadata formatting. Can anyone share a file for metadata used for Songbird? Thank you in advance.

Hi @Angela1971
I encountered similar issue with "to_dense" error when installed SCNIC plugin. The solution was to downgrade pandas:
pip install pandas==0.25
It can break other plugins, so after running songbird upgrade pandas back:
pip install pandas -U

Hope it will solve the issue

Sorry, it appeared that pandas 0.25 is incompatible with my current qiime2 version. I have qiime-2020.11. Thanks anyway.
