In 2019 [[https://ncbiinsights.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/2019/05/24/have-you-tried-blast-2-9-0-and-version-5-blast-databases-dbv5/|NCBI introduced BLAST database format version 5]] and these only work with BLAST tools starting from 2.9.0. NCBI are no longer updating the version 4 databases, but we have preserved them in a separate directory if you are using tools that do not support version 5:
