The example SM_sphere_S2 breaks when it gets to section 'Tangent Spaces', thus:

AttributeError: 'DifferentiableManifold_with_category' object has no attribute 'tangent_space'.

referring to the manifold S2.

Why would a differentiable manifold not have a tangent space? or does the example need to be modified?

This is because SageManifolds is not fully integrated in SageMath 7.3. Only the part corresponding to the tickets #15916 to #18783 in the list is there. As you can see, tangent spaces (ticket #19092) are not in SageMath yet. Hopefully, it will be in version 7.4. Meanwhile, simply install the full SageManifolds atop SageMath 7.3 by following these instructions and all the S^2 examples should pass.

Thanks. I take it that manifolds-0.9 remains the definitive, stable version until further notice.
