Downloading Albacore from ONT

#1

Hello,

I am trying to download the Albacore basecaller from the ONT website. I have downloaded the wheel to my personal computer but when I try and transfer the wheel to my CLIMB VM and run the pip install command on it, it gives me the following error message:

Collecting Albacore_wheel
Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement Albacore_wheel (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for Albacore_wheel

Im not sure why this is happening. I thought at first it could be something to do with read and write access to the file ?

Thanks

Jack

pip can install directly from URLs, so you shouldn’t have to transfer files between your local machine and your VM. Try something like:

sudo pip3 install https://<albacore_url>.whl

and see what happens…

Hello,

Thanks for the advice however the following error is now happening:

The directory ‘/home/ubuntu/.cache/pip/http’ or its parent directory is not owned by the current user and the cache has been disabled. Please check the permissions and owner of that directory. If executing pip with sudo, you may want sudo’s -H flag.
The directory ‘/home/ubuntu/.cache/pip’ or its parent directory is not owned by the current user and caching wheels has been disabled. check the permissions and owner of that directory. If executing pip with sudo, you may want sudo’s -H flag.
ont_albacore-2.3.0-cp36-cp36m-macosx_10_11_x86_64.whl is not a supported wheel on this platform.

The first part is just a warning - nothing to worry about.

The second error is because you’re trying to install a macosx wheel on a Linux VM - try the URL for the Linux wheel and you should be good!
