Having problem with VQSR step

Hi there.

I'm Lynn, doing the whole genome sequencing for human. I'm currently using GATK for variant call and now having problems for VQSR step.

Here is the command I entered:
[email protected]:/media/promise/storage/Tools/Softwares/GenomeAnalysisTK-3.4-0$ java -Xmx4g -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T VariantRecalibrator -R /media/promise/storage/References/Referance/GATK\ Bundle/hg19/ucsc.hg19.fasta -input /media/promise/storage/Postgrad/Deep\ and\ median\ coverage/Re-run\ phasing/Deep\ coverage/SM19/SM19.bam.vcf -resource:hapmap,known=false,training=true,truth=true,prior=15.0 /media/promise/storage/References/Referance/GATK\ Bundle/hg19/hapmap_3.3.hg19.vcf -resource:omni,known=false,training=true,truth=true,prior=12.0 /media/promise/storage/References/Referance/GATK\ Bundle/hg19/2.8/1000G_omni2.5.hg19.sites.vcf -resource:1000G,known=false,training=true,truth=false,prior=10.0 /media/promise/storage/References/Referance/GATK\ Bundle/hg19/2.8/1000G_phase1.snps.high_confidence.hg19.sites.vcf -resource:dbsnp,known=true,training=false,truth=false,prior=2.0 /media/promise/storage/References/Referance/GATK\ Bundle/hg19/2.8/dbsnp_138.hg19.vcf -an QD -an MQRankSum -an ReadPosRanksum -an FS -an DP -mode SNP -recalFile /media/promise/storage/Postgrad/Deep\ and\ median\ coverage/Re-run\ phasing/Deep\ coverage/SM19/SM19_snp.recal -tranchesFile /media/promise/storage/Postgrad/Deep\ and\ median\ coverage/Re-run\ phasing/Deep\ coverage/SM19/SM19_snp.tranches -rscriptFile /media/promise/storage/Postgrad/Deep\ and\ median\ coverage/Re-run\ phasing/Deep\ coverage/SM19/SM19_snp.plots.R

It initially run smoothly but then the error appeared:

ERROR ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ERROR A USER ERROR has occurred (version 3.4-0-g7e26428):
ERROR This means that one or more arguments or inputs in your command are incorrect.

I've tried to find the answer from the forums but I'm not really understand on what should I do with to fix this error. Could anyone please help me?

Thank you in advance!
