I tried running script(v2.3.9) on my STAR (v2.1) mapped WTS bam file and I get the following error. Can some one  explain why I am getting this error?

I am getting the same error. I am sure the solution is simple, but hopefully someone can help!

I managed to get this working. I think the issue is related to an imperfect BED file. I downloaded a new BED file from UCSC using the GENCODE v23 track with the Basic table. I then used cat hg38_GENCODE_v23_basic | sed "s/^chr//" > hg38_GENCODE_v23_basic.nochr.bed to strip the leading chr marker that isn't used in my STAR-aligned BAM files. Using that new BED file I was able to run successfully. Good luck!
