I have been trying to convert a sra file to fastq and encountered following error message:
fastq-dump.2.1.7 err: data bad version while constructing page map within virtual database module - failed SRR2053277.sra
I've placed the fastq-dump executable file in the same folder as the sra file. I have used the following command
fastq-dump -A SRR2053277.sra
There are two fastq-dump executable files in the sra tollkit / bin such as fastq-dump.1.0.0 and fastq-dump.2.6.2. I have used both these names in place of 'fastq-dump' but got the error messages such as
fastq-dump.2.6.2: command not found
fastq-dump.1.0.0: command not found
How can I avoid getting these errors?
