I'm trying to download the latest sra-toolkit from NCBI on a remote server running "Debian GNU/Linux 7 (wheezy)". I tried following the instructions in https://github.com/ncbi/sra-tools/wiki/02.-Installing-SRA-Toolkit, and I also tried following the instructions by Renesh Bedre in https://reneshbedre.github.io/blog/fqutil.html, unsuccessfully.
For example, after the installation I try running sudo prefetch SRR5790104 and I get the following: prefetch: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by prefetch) .
In comparison, after downloading the same file and following the same instructions on another server we are working on, running "Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS" , everything worked just fine.
Has anyone dealt with this issue before and knows how to fix it?
