I'm trying to use phylosift, 

first the link

I have a version that I don't know if it is the correct one phylosift_v1.0.1.tar.bz2 from 2017. I've decompressed it and I've downloaded the datasets from 

that I unziped and placed under:/home/igor/share/phylosift/
three folders : ncbi ; markers ; markers_test2.

The problem is that when I try to run I use the command:

 phylosift all Cluster1.fasta

and I have this error:
rm: cannot remove '/home/igor/Desktop/MetaBATBin_vs_MyCCbin_checkm/MyCC/PS_temp/Cluster1.fasta/blastDir/*.aa.1*': No such file or directory

I don't know what is happening.
Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance

The dash download was for testing purposes, I'm not sure the correct database has been uploaded to that.

Download the markers.tgz from
and unpack it in the location you mention.

start with "phylosift index" then try "phylosift all Cluster1.fastq"
