I am trying to use update_blastdb.pl (ncbi-blast-2.13.0+) to download the compressed nr BLAST database, the command is as following
update_blastdb.pl --decompress nr. It shows the following error: "Downloading nr.00.tar.gz...corrupt download, trying again."
In the manual, the author mentioned that "if you run into any problems with this invocation, please try the –passive option, which is enabled by default in BLAST+ 2.8.1 and following", I am using blast-2.13.0+, so the --passive option should be default. Any suggestions how I could make this work?
Thanks a lot!
