6.10 update results in recursion depth runtime error every time sage starts

I installed the 6.10 debian 8 version of sage two days back and ever since everytime I start sage, it gives the error, "RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded during compilation" everytime I start sage.

I then compiled it once more in my machine using the configure and make, but the error continues.

Should I be worried about this error? If yes, what can I do?

thanks a lot.

PS: I had tried to upgrade using the sage upgrade script, but was getting the error "fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'https'" which seems like a git issue. So I installed the debian version.

You should provide more informations. How did you install Sage (it seems that you used some Debian binaries)? Could you copy/paste more completely the error message you get (there should be a complete traceback that points to the guilty function)?

I got the sage binary built for debian ( sage-6.10-Debian_GNU_Linux_8-x86_64.tar.bz2) from our repository and just untarred it. How can I get the complete trace? strace? I have strace output but no idea what it means and it is too large to paste here.

I meant simply what appears on the screen (the Python traceback). Isn't there more than one line of error? Could you send a message with a complete copy/paste of the error either here or to the list https://groups.google.com/forum/#!for...

ACtually this is what my friend Nathann Cohen also asked me. But strangely this is the only message I get. Here is the full thing

narayana@neelakantha:/opt/sage$ ./sage RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded during compilation ┌────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┐ │ SageMath Version 6.10, Release Date: 2015-12-18 │ │ Type "notebook()" for the browser-based notebook interface. │ │ Type "help()" for help. │ └────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┘

Any suggestions? I have a new problem after a debian security update. I get the folowing message over and over::

Rewriting paths for your new installation directory

This might take a few minutes but only has to be done once.
