I want to install ensembl-vep in my Ubuntu 18.04.2.

I have already installed LWP::Simple. What can I do in the next step?

Thanks in advance for great help!

    curl failed (000), trying to fetch using LWP::Simple

Hello MSRS,

Thank you so much for your suggestion.

I am in China and because of the firewall, sorry for responding later.

I still have problem in "perl" command.

Thank you again and really appreciated!

Best Regards,
