GATK error: no positional argument is defined for this tool.

I am trying to run a pipeline GATK using the Snakemake. When I form the pipeline gradually, add one rule to the snakemake and the input/otput data are formed in stages, then such a problem does not arise.

But when I run this pipeline, I get the error:

A USER ERROR has occurred: Illegal argument value: Positional arguments were provided ',out_GatherBQSRReports/NSK9.normal.GatherBQSRReports.txt}' but no positional argument is defined for this tool.

and such snakemake error:

/gatk- --java-options -Xmx7680m GatherBQSRReports -I -O out_GatherBQSRReports/NSK9.normal.GatherBQSRReports.txt (one of the commands exited with non-zero exit code; note that snakemake uses bash strict mode!)

import glob

SAMPLES = glob_wildcards("input_bam/{sample}.bam")
INTERVALS = glob_wildcards("intervals/{interval}.bed")
all_samples_BaseRecalibrator = glob.glob("out_BaseRecalibrator/*-scattered.txt")

the value of all_samples_BaseRecalibrator is empty. Furthermore, why do you have two -I in this command ?

Sorry, I tried to fix the error and added an extra input. However, nothing changes even if the last rule looks like this:

rule gatk_GatherBQSRReports:
        input: all_samples_BaseRecalibrator
        output: "out_GatherBQSRReports/{sample}.GatherBQSRReports.txt"
        params: all_samples_BaseRecalibrator=' -I '.join(all_samples_BaseRecalibrator)
        shell: "./gatk- --java-options  ""-Xmx7680m"" GatherBQSRReports -I {params.all_samples_BaseRecalibrator}  -O {output}"

It seems to me that the reason for the error in the snakemake. Because the gatk_GatherBQSRReports works successfully if the folder already contains the results of the previous rules.
