I am trying to mask repeats using RepeatMasker. The software dies at this stage. I don't seem to have a solution for. No other error message is given.

Exec ~/exe/RepeatMasker/ProcessRepeats -lib ~/maker/mycustom_repeat.fa -orifile ~/22_09_19_flye/racon3x_pilon3x/MUCU_Flye_racon3_pilon3.fasta -maskSource ~/braker_annotation_08092020/RM_406998.WedSep91725412020/MUCU_Flye_racon3_pilon3.fasta ~/braker_annotation_08092020/RM_406998.WedSep91725412020/MUCU_Flye_racon3_pilon3.fasta.cat.gz failed

Could you share your input files, mycustom_repeat.fa, MUCU_Flye_racon3_pilon3.fasta, MUCU_Flye_racon3_pilon3.fasta.cat.gz?*

Some ideas:

• how did you install or invoke RepeatMasker, are you missing some dependencies?
• system information, OS? Is that Linux? Try to install latest version with Bioconda
• really no error log, possibly the output is dumped into a log file? Try to run the failing command in a terminal, possible to se more there.
• why is there a gzip compressed file on the command line, is that intentional?
