I am interested in contributing to the sage cell server and am going through the steps outlined in the readme in the github page. When I get to step #5, I get the following error message that is detailed below. I am running this on a kubuntu virtual machine (VMWare) but I don't see that should matter. Is there another way to achieve this? Can I just download and unzip the archive? If this is the case, where do I unzip it to? Any insight as to what the issue might be is greatly appreciated, thanks!
