Warning in kneaddata.utilities, unable to remove file

Hello,

I’m wondering if anyone can help with this error.

Here’s what I ran:

kneaddata
–input ./demo.fastq
–reference-db ~/private/Tools/human_ref_genome
–output qc_kneaddata_demo2
–trimmomatic /share/apps/Trimmomatic-0.39
–trimmomatic-options “SLIDINGWINDOW:4:20 MINLEN:50”
–bowtie2 /share/apps/bowtie2-2.4.2/bin
–bowtie2-options “–very-sensitive --dovetail”
–remove-intermediate-output
-v
-t 4 \

The log file includes the following warning message: WARNING: Unable to remove file: /home/xuanhe89/private/Lime_metagenomic/Batch1_test_set/qc_kneaddata_demo2/demo_kneaddata_hg37dec_v0.1_bowtie2_clean.fastq
