How did you acquire bowtie2? Did you install it yourself or are you using it on a server?

Which version of bowtie2 are you using? I was using bowtie2-2.1.0 and then I noticed that there was a new version (bowtie2-2.3.0), so I've updated it and bowtie2 started giving me this very same error when trying to align sequences to the reference. I went back to bowtie2-2.1.0 and it's working again. I understand that this is not the best solution, but it's still better than no solution at all.

I Have the same error since 2 weeks ago but until now I could not find a way to resolve the error "Bowtie2 (ERR): bowtie2-align exited with value 1" when using tophat2. Please help

I'm having the same problem. I installed the legacy version bowtie2-2.3.2-legacy. It worked fine before, but not now...

I installed the bowtie2-2.3.4.3 by conda using "conda install -c bioconda bowtie2". When I type the command bowtie2, an error message is at the end "(ERR): bowtie2-align exited with value 1". but I type the ommand bowtie2 -h, it's ok.

You should enter the complete bowtie2command you want to execute. Since bowtie2 -h is working the programs is properly installed.

This seems to be a simple issue of bowtie2-align not being in the $PATH. Should be easily fixable by doing export PATH=$PATH:/path_to_bowtie2_executables.

BTW: Why are you using a VM if you are working on a Mac? macOS is a real unix OS and you can compile/run most bioinformatics programs natively. Bowtie2 macOS binaries available here.

Or use Homebrew to install Bowtie2.
