I am trying to install and run the check_strandedness tool in a Unix shell, but I am encountering an error when installing it. First, I downloaded the clone with…

git clone

but when I type the command...

pip install how_are_we_stranded_here

I receive the following error…

ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement how_are_we_stranded_here (from versions: none)
ERROR: No matching distribution found for how_are_we_stranded_here

I have the following packages to meet the requirements of how_are_we_stranded_here

kallisto 0.44.0
python 3.8.3

I am also working within a VirtualBox version of Xubuntu.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you

Can you try

pip3 install how_are_we_stranded_here

Also, are you sure the git command succeeded?

Hi RamRS - thank you for your reply!

I tried the above command you suggested:

pip3 install how_are_we_stranded_here

but I received the same error output.

Though I think the git command succeeded, as the output was as follows:

I think it might be a platform specific error. I took a look at their known issues and there is one that exactly matches your problem:

Given that it is solved there, it should work for you too.
