Lefse - error in format file

Lefse module not working. Even the test file provided “hmm_aerobiosis_small” gives the same error when formatting the data. Unable to proceed.

Dear all,

We have the same issue with the format. We get the following error even with the files that perfectly worked before

“Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/bin/lefse_format_input.py”, line 8, in
File “/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/lefse/lefse_format_input.py”, line 437, in format_input
lefse_ready_chat_1.txt (22.1 KB)"

We highly appreciate if anyone could help us on this. Thank you

I am having the same issue
