Hi everyone,


We have tried many times to install DESeq2 to our local instance of Galaxy. The install is successful but when we run the tool we get the following error:


Fatal error: An undefined error occurred, please check your input carefully and contact your administrator.
Error in library("getopt") : there is no package called ‘getopt’


Now, upon closer inspection I do see that bioconductor-deseq2 is listed as a dependency and that dependency was not resolved in the installation. I don't know where to get this dependency in Galaxy as when I search for it in the tool shed there are many bioconductor packages available (edgeR, limma..) but nothing for DESeq2. Has anyone ran into this issue or have any ideas?

Thanks, I was trying to get some input from the author of the tool, Michael Love and thought this forum would be the best place to reach him.

I don't have any additional ideas beyond what Jim pointed out. If you get stuck contact Galaxy for help.

This doesn't really seem like a Bioconductor question. You are trying to do stuff with a local Galaxy installation, and that installation is failing because you don't have the CRAN getopt package installed. I would imagine installing the missing package would be the first step, and if you have further questions, probably you should be asking on whatever help forum exists for Galaxy.
