GenomicsDBImport GATK v4.0.9.0 BookKeeping error


I'm trying to use the latest version of GATK and on the GenomicsDBImport step I can't import any gvcf on my machine.

I keep getting the following error with any input options:

TileDB error message : [TileDB::BookKeeping] Error: Cannot finalize book-keeping; Writing domain size failed

An example command:

gatk- --java-options "-Xms4g -XX:ParallelGCThreads=4" GenomicsDBImport \
-ip 250 \
--overwrite-existing-genomicsdb-workspace true \
-L chr22:4514841-4617450 \
--genomicsdb-workspace-path /path/to/workspace/ \
--tmp-dir /path/to/large/tmp/dir \
-V v1.chr22.g.vcf.gz

The error message isn't informative and so far I wasn't able to track down the origin of this problem. The only thing that I'm certain about is that importing work relatively stable for me on version and doesn't work on any newer versions - I get the very same error. Do you have any solutions to this problem?

Thank you,
