Dear Friends,

I am trying to annotate an assembled genome using prokka

prokka MULTIFASTA.fa  --usegenus --genus vibrio --species parahaemolyticus  --outdir VP81_ANNOTATED --prefix VP81

When running the above command I get this error below:

[02:21:09] This is prokka 1.14.5

I tried to solve it typing prokka --setupdb but anything changes.

Could you give any advice?

Thanks in advance!

Dear Mensur,

Unfortunately I tried it scripting

prokka --usegenus --genus vibrio --species parahaemolyticus --outdir VP81_ANNOTATED --prefix VP81 MULTIFASTA.fasta

However it didn't work.

I think it is possible that the trouble comes from the installation of Bioperl :

Argument "1.7.7" isn`t numeric in numeric lt (<) at usr/bin/prokka line 259

Or with the indexed sequence databases, for examples after run prokka --setupdb I got:

Looking for database in:/var/lib/prokka/db *Kingdoms: *Genera: Enterococcus Escherichia Staphylococcus * HMMs: *CMs: Archea Bacteria Viruses

Thanks in advance, JAB

It would have been helpful if you gave the full error message from the beginning. It seems this is a problem for prokka team, which is easy to find by googling that error message:
