OrthoMCL workflow BLAST Database error: No alias or index file found for protein database

I encountered the error below during the “blastp Bin2_mod.fasta.clean vs ‘OrthoMCL_OG6r10_proteins_blast_db’” step of the OrthoMCL workflow. This error has been previously reported. However, the problem (“the fasta dataset had duplicated identifiers”) is not an issue with my fasta file.

python: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.25' not found (required by python)
BLAST Database error: No alias or index file found for protein database [/mnt/galaxyIndices2/genomes/miscellaneous/eupathdb_blastdb_20220303/blastp] in search path [/scratch/galaxy/job_working_directory/000/209/209932/task_0/working::]

My fasta file looks like this:

head Bin2_mod.fasta

Hi! I got the same error and emailed them through their contact page VEuPathDB (I think they are more responsive there since they have their own particular instance of Galaxy). I got this response today (25 March 2022):

Thank for your email. It turns out the wrong database was listed in the galaxy workflow. I hope we can get this fixed today and I will let you know.

We don’t offer the databases for download because they end up being huge. Hopefully, the workflow will be back in business soon.


So, hopefully fixed soon!
