see my answer below

Futhermore:

 /usr/bin/picard: No such file or directory

means you have a basic $PATH problem...

. cp -r picard ~/software_library/ ln -sf ~/software_library/picard/picard.jar ~/software_library/bin/picard

this cannot work. picard.jar is not a standalone executable but a java jar : http://www.geeksforgeeks.org/jar-files-java/

you muts invoke it with java:

java -jar /path/to/picard.jar MarkDuplicates

Try using bioconda. After installation of Anaconda and setting up the bioconda repository, you can install Picard tools like this:

$ conda install picard
