Let's say I have an SRA file previously downloaded to a local filesystem by using
prefetch from SRA toolkit, but I don't have internet access. Theoretically, I should be able to convert it into FASTQ format using either
fasterq-dump. However, both of these throw errors like
error from srapath: Error: RC(rcNS,rcNoTarg,rcValidating,rcConnection,rcNotFound)
I have confirmed that the conversion works fine when internet is enabled (using SRR000001 as a test). Why does fastq-dump need to access the internet here? And is there a way to get it to work without the internet access, perhaps by telling it not to check the srapath?
