What version of mothur are you running and what version of OS X ? Mothur requires at least OS X 10.14

Dear Westcott,
I am using Mac OS 10.12 Sierra with Mothur 1.44.

The version of OS X is the issue. Mothur is built for 10.14 or greater. I recommend upgrading your version of OS X. https://www.apple.com/macos/how-to-upgrade/
