"Illegal instruction" error in BCF tools

Hi all,

When I run the following command in in interactive session in my HPC system, it seems to run fine. I let it go for a minute or so, which it does without errors, and then kill it, because it's not appropriate to run such job in an interactive session.

But when I submit it as a batch job, it crashes with the following error within less than 10 secs of starting.

bcftools view -S ^outgrouplist -o tem.vcf thevcf_raw_24apr2020.vcf

25812 Illegal instruction     (core dumped) bcftools view -S ^outgrouplist -o tem.vcf thevcf_raw_24apr2020.vcf

I made sure that the output file doesn't already exist, because that's caused me errors in the past.

BCFTools 1.9.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Output of head outgrouplist?

You may need to run it like this as part of the batch script:

echo `bcftools view -S ^outgrouplist -o tem.vcf thevcf_raw_24apr2020.vcf`

Those are backticks.
