I'm trying to annotate my VCF file using ANNOVAR function There are few files that I need to download before I can use the function. I managed to download all the required files except for 1000 genomes database. Below is the command that I used. -buildver hg19 -downdb -webfrom annovar 1000g2014oct humandb/

However, I'm getting this error

NOTICE: Web-based checking to see whether ANNOVAR new version is available ... Done

NOTICE: Downloading annotation database http://www.openbioinformatics.... ... Done

NOTICE: Uncompressing downloaded files


End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not

a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the

latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on

the last disk(s) of this archive.

note: may be a plain executable, not an archive

unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of or, and cannot find, period.

I'm running my analysis on UNIX

Try this:

perl -downdb -webfrom annovar --buildver hg19 1000g2014oct /humandb.

Maybe the file is corrupted. Try download again. If error persist then check your administrator to see what is happen with your system.
