    We had a few issues with the release system overnight, looks like you got a bad package. Please download the latest version -- you'll get the new v 2.2 in the bargain.

    I spotted the cause of this problem. It was because of '+' that was in the directory name 'SNP+Indels' inside which GATK jar file and other data files were located. When i renamed the directory removing '+' it worked.

    Ah, that makes sense -- a path name with funny characters is nobody's friend. Glad to hear your problem's solved.
