ERROR in loading BIOM file


#1

Hello,

I am using MEGAN 6 (6.7.1) and MEGAN 5 (5.11.3) on Ubuntu system. Loading BIOM file into these software used to be well. But now it keeps showing: Error: Execute failed: java.io.IOException: [F cannot be cast to [I.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi all

I am facing the same problem, I’ve just installed Megan6 and updated Java, but the error message is there whenever I try to open a .biom file…
I don’t know what I am doing wrong.
