I'm having a problem with MAKER2, it's producing the following error message for all contigs and I can't work out how to fix it. Initially, it had a problem finding RepBase, so I set the following environmental variable before invoking maker export REPEATMASKER_LIB_DIR=/path/to/my/repeatmasker/lib (recommended here). Have I missed something stupid? How do I fix this?

Possible precedence issue with control flow operator at /shared/software/miniconda3/envs/maker/lib/site_perl/5.26.2/Bio/DB/IndexedBase.pm line 845.

Are either of you able to run repeatmasker itself, so not in the MAKER pipeline but just run that command in your terminal?

A way to solve this problem I have used is to first run MAKER with repeatmasker only (do not perform any other task e.g. evidence alignement or prediction) setting the chunck size to a lower value (max_dna_len parameter).

Then you can run MAKER normally ( with normal max_dna_len and parameters you wish e.g. alignment, gene prediction, etc...) but without repeatmasking setp. Instead you provide the gff file from the repeat output of the previous run.
