I have been trying to download ChIP-seq data using SRA-toolkit.
prefetch -v SRR4032857
I get an error
Maximum file size download limit is 20,971,520KB 2017-01-03T09:32:45 prefetch.2.3.5 err: error unexpected while resolving tree within virtual file system module - failed to resolve accession 'SRR925811' - Obsolete software. See https://github.com/ncbi/sra-tools/wiki ( 406 ) Redirected!!! 2017-01-03T09:32:46 prefetch.2.3.5 err: name incorrect while evaluating path within network system module - Scheme is 'https' 2017-01-03T09:32:46 prefetch.2.3.5 err: path not found while resolving tree within virtual file system module - 'SRR925811' cannot be found.
I checked my hard disk space and also changed the default download folder from
./vdb-config -i. I downloaded the SRA-toolkit version 2.8.1.
What could be the issue and how can i resolve it?
I know it shows prefetch.2.3.5 but I did download the sra-toolkit.2.8.1 from the following link: https://github.com/ncbi/sra-tools/wiki/Downloads
Also, in the directory /sratoolkit.2.8.1-ubuntu64/bin, the name of the executable file linked to
command is prefetch.2.8.1
