The last time I used mothur is about a year ago, but then everything was fine. I was trying to do some analysis based on the same data today using the cluster command, however, I only got the following error massage:
_mothur > cluster(phylip=outfile.dist)
Unable to open outfile.dist
No valid current files. You must provide a phylip or column file before you can use the cluster command.
[ERROR]: did not complete cluster._
I computed the outfile with dnadist from Phylip. And I did the same analysis a year ago, that time everything was ok. I also tried the cluster command on some of the example files, provided by mothur, and I got the same error. I also downloaded mothur again, and I still got the same error message.
So if anybody can help me, that would be great!
Thanx in advance!
