  • Troubleshooting

In case you got error like this: /home/hou/Software/bin/bin/embossupdate: error while loading shared libraries: libnucleus.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory, then you need to install the emboss library(check here), and copy the library to the lib folder where your server can visit:

sudo apt-get install emboss-lib
cp -r /usr/lib/emboss/ /home/hou/Software/bin/lib
