Error when using GenotypeGVCFs with GenomicsDB


I'm using GATK and when running GenotypeGVCFs with a GenomicsDB workspace as input, I get the following error:

In previous GATK versions I ran into some problems with file locking and Lustre, but in this case, it shouldn't be a problem since it doesn't even work when disabling file locking.

Thank you,
