    Hi Lucas Kopecky Bobadilla

    The fact that the uBAM is readname-sorted and the mapped BAM is coordinate-sorted is the exact problem causing the error you are reporting. Both uBAM and mapped BAM must be readname-sorted (since uBAM cannot be coordinate-sorted). Try to sort the mapped BAM by a read name.

    "Everything worked fine previously" does not actually mean the data was the same at that time. Unless you can check the sorting order of the BAM files from your previous pipeline runs you cannot presume the error is elsewhere but in the sorting order.
