"path not found while resolving tree within virtual file system module"

Problem:

'HOME' variable might have changed (compared to installation of SRA-tools)

echo $HOME

/home/my-user-name/

Solution:

Set SRA-tools config to default values (confirm new HOME directory):

vdb-config -i

# if path is correct, just confirm again by typing numbers: 6 and 7

https://github.com/ncbi/sra-tools/wiki/Toolkit-Configuration

# check setting file in your home directory (file generated by vdb-config)

cat ${HOME}/.ncbi/user-settings.mkfg

/repository/remote/main/CGI/resolver-cgi = "https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Traces/names/names.cgi"

/repository/remote/protected/CGI/resolver-cgi = "https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Traces/names/names.cgi"

/repository/user/default-path = "/home/my-user-name/ncbi/public"
