error in of CNCI package

I am currently working on lncRNA using CNCI package. I have identified more than 10,000 coordinates of probable lncRNA using cufflinks-cuffcompare, based on class-codes and now I want to identified coding non-coding potential of it. When I am trying to run command of CNCI package, I am facing following error.

Classification start:
Input genes:  8004
Running Cuffcompare ...
Classifying based on Cuffcompare results:
Known coding genes: 0
Known lincRNA genes: 281
Undefinable genes: 686
Potentially novel genes: 7037
Genes missing classification by cuffcompare: 0
Saving gtf files ...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 272, in <module>
  File "/home/orf8/Desktop/CNCI-master/", line 908, in paste
IndexError: list index out of range

Though it generate some statistics files in cuffcompare folder of cnci_out which noncoding_stat file shows as follow.

Summary for dataset: cnci_1_out/cuffcompare/combined.gtf :
#     Query mRNAs :   10630 in    8158 loci  (0 multi-exon transcripts)
#            (0 multi-transcript loci, ~1.3 transcripts per locus)

            Novel loci:    7664/8158    ( 93.9%)

 Total union super-loci across all input datasets: 8063

Can anyone explain about error and how can I solve it to run next-step of CNCI?

Thank you.

That looks like an "internal" error of that script, and I expect the developers to understand best what's going on. Have you tried contacting them?

However, I also found this unresolved issue which seems to describe the same problem, unanswered for half a year.

This looks like a classic example of people abandoning academic software as soon as it's published.
