I have an ubuntu 16.04 LTS OS and have installed the software FastQC from the site: http://www.bioinformatics.babraham.ac.uk/projects/download.html.
when I try to open a .fastq file with FastQC as part of a pipeline: fastqc 'path_to_file/file.fastq' a zip folder with the results is produced in the same directory of fastq file, but throws the error: 'An error occurred while loading the archive' when I try to open the file interactively (by typing fastqc in command line and then click File -> Open) it uploads till 95% and then stops.
Could someone please explain what am I doing wrong? Is it related with the installation?
