/home//samples/chronic pancreatitis

The error may be due to the space in the folder name. As a rule of thumb, avoid spaces altogether in file and folder names - while many programs deals with them just fine, some don't. If you do use spaces, escape the space (/home//samples/chronic\ pancreatitis) or use single quotes ('/home//samples/chronic pancreatitis').
