Galaxy can create
sra data, and it can be stored within Galaxy, but few if any tools use the data directly. And none of those are installed at https://usegalaxy.org or https://usegalaxy.eu. This format is used to submit data to the public repositories. Example: to create an archive: NGS: Mothur > Make.sra creates the necessary files for a NCBI submission.
For analysis in Galaxy, obtain the
fastqsanger version of the data and use that with tools. These can be retrieved using the tools Get Data > ENA SRA and/or NCBI SRA Tools > Download and Extract Reads in FASTA/Q format from NCBI SRA.

There are updated methods for RNA-seq analysis you might want to consider. Please see the Galaxy tutorials here for examples: https://galaxyproject.org/learn/

Next time, please reply back in the same post, it helps keep the conversation thread intact.
