Dear Amber team and Igor,

I created a new directory without space, as you both suggested and it worked.

Thank you for your quickness!

Best Regards.

Can you get rid of the spaces in the directory name? I will see if this is a problem and try to come up with a fix if it is. Also try to stick to ASCII characters, since several programming languages do not offer strong support
 for Unicode character sets.

Quite a few unix programs have trouble dealing with file names containing white space and non-ASCII, so you should typically avoid this in folder and file names.

It always helps to give the full commands you used as well as their output. There is frequently a difference between what you really did and what you thought you did.
