Hi all,

I hope someone can help me deal with  my problem : I am currently customizing a local version of the Galaxy platform on my computer and I'd like to install Prokka (maintained by CRS4) everything works pretty well until Galaxy tries to install the tbl2asn_23_7 package, a dependency owned by takadonet. I have the following error and i must say I've tried quite a lot of things to solve the issue but it did not work:

File "/home/galaxy/galaxy-dist/lib/tool_shed/galaxy_install/", line 110, in install_and_build_package_via_fabric

tool_dependency = self.install_and_build_package( app, tool_shed_repository, tool_dependency, actions_dict )
File "/home/galaxy/galaxy-dist/lib/tool_shed/galaxy_install/", line 79, in install_and_build_package
current_dir = os.path.abspath( os.path.join( work_dir, dir ) )
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 66, in join
if b.startswith('/'):

'NoneType' object has no attribute 'startswith'

It looks like a python error but there is probably another problem somewhere.

Any ideas ?

Thanks a lot

I've asked takadonet about this and, while I don't (yet) know what the actual issue is, he says that reinstalling the package from the admin menu will resolve the issue.  Can you give this a try and let me know if it works for you?

Edit:  This should also be fixed in newer releases of galaxy, I think we figured out which issue you were running into.

I can confirm that the latest version of Galaxy solves the problem. Version 2014.06.02 had the same error described above, while Galaxy version 2014.10.06 installed the tbl2asn_23_7 package successfully.
