Phylophlan_metagenomic: unable to download databases


I tried to run phylophlan_metagenomic with the available database (SGB.MMMYY), but I got an error message as below:

[e] unable to download “

This error message appeared on not only SGB.Dec19, but also other databases too.

How can I handle this problem?



Dear Kim, thanks for reporting this.
We had issues with our FTP server. You can remove the phylophlan_metagenomic.txt file so that the updated one with the fixed URLs will be downloaded.
The SGB.Sep20 database will not be available in the updated phylophlan_metagenomic.txt file, we are working on this and it should be available again by mid next week.

Many thanks,
