Dear Prasad, I’m glad to hear that you solved your problem. I must say, though, that the problem and the solution only seems to me to be tangentially related. Although neither you, I, nor probably anyone else could have guessed from the cryptic and nondescript error message, you were probably missing some critical core package required to build the library. Many of these dependencies would be installed via
sudo apt-get install build-essential but it could be that something else is required. Here, for example, is a list of the packages assumed to be installed when building deal.II using Candi. https://github.com/dealii/candi/blob/master/deal.II-toolchain/platforms/supported/ubuntu20.platform#L6-L10 Note through that many of these packages would only be required by the dependencies (e.g. Trilinos). The key one there is, again, probably build-essential . But this is just speculation - I currently don’t have an Ubuntu installation with to test my suspicion. But I thought I’d just share my thoughts in case someone else hits the same problem and spots this thread while looking for a solution.
