I am attempting to install the latest version of cutadapt (1.9) using the source code. I have downloaded cutadapt-1.9.tar.gz, extracted it and ran the following:
python setup.py install --user.
Cutadapt install fine, but then when I check the version, it says I have installed version 1.3. I then try the following:
pip install --user --upgrade cutadapt
to see if it will upgrade the program, but it does nothing and I still only have version 1.3 installed.
Can anyone help m with how to get the latest version of cutadapt? I am running python 2.7 so it should work fine.
