Error: fmt problem while running p2y

Dear All,

While running the executable "p2y" for generating input files for Yambo using output files of Quantum ESPRESSO, I encountered this error:

p2y

Below are some details of our installation :

Kindly, suggest a solution.

Dear Manish,

If I well understood from the GitHub issues session you are using yambo 4.5.
Please update to the latest yambo release 5.0. If the problem persists please report.

Best,
Daniele
