I have got approval and downloaded sra files of restricted dataset from dbGAP. However, I am getting the following error while dumping to fastq. Here are the steps I used.
Step 01: download sra (successful)
prefetch --ascp-path '/fullPath/ascp2.7/asperaweb_id_dsa.putty' --max-size 100G --ascp-options "-T -k 2 -l 400M" SRR3819129
Step 02: dump fastq files (error)
/fullPath/sratoolkit.2.8.2-1-ubuntu64/bin/fastq-dump --split-files --gzip /fullPath/phs000435/SRR3819129.sra
2018-07-24T03:41:19 fastq-dump.2.8.2 err: item not found while constructing within virtual database module - the path '/fullPath/phs000435/SRR3819129.sra' cannot be opened as database or table
However fastq-dump works successfully for the public data SRR390728 using the same procedures.
fastq-dump -X 5 -Z SRR390728
Additionally, I tried using "vdb-config --restore-defaults" but did not work. It would be great if you can help me with that.
Thanks in advance!
