Error message in make.sra command

Hi!

I am trying to use the make.sra command and am getting the following error and segmentation fault which quits mothur:

mothur > make.sra(file=RZF_MI.files, project=rhizfun.project, mimark=RZF_MI.txt)

[ERROR]: MIMarks file is missing group , please correct.

Segmentation fault: 11

I used the following command to make the mimark file:

get.mimarkspackage(file=RZF_MI.files)

then edited the mimark in excel.

I verified that the groups in the mimark and the .files are the same. Not sure what is causing this. I am using mothur v1.41.3

Thanks for your help!

Welcome to the mothur community! I would like to help you resolve this problem. Are you seeing this error in our current version, https://github.com/mothur/mothur/releases/tag/v.1.43.0? If you are, could you send your file file, project file, mimark file and log file to mothur.bugs@gmail.com so I can trouble shoot the problem for you?

Thank you for the reply. I updated to the latest version of mothur and the command worked. Thank you!
