My computer is a MacBook Pro (Late 2013) running macOS High Sierra. I've downloaded SageMath-8.5.app and tried to run it. I got the following error message in the sage.log file.

Unfortunately the advice in the error message seems hard to use: the directories it refers to cannot be found. I have Python 3.4 installed.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My expertise level is "beginner".

Error setting environment variables by sourcing '/Applications/SageMath-8.5 2.app/Contents/Resources/sage/src/bin/sage-env';
possibly contact sage-devel (see "link removed because karma not high enough to post it here").
/Applications/SageMath-8.5.app/Contents/Resources/sage/src/bin/sage-env: line 311: [: /Applications/SageMath-8.5: binary operator expected
Error: Tried to use Sage's Python which was not yet installed.
If this was called from an spkg-install script for another 
package you should add $(PYTHON) as a dependency in 
build/pkgs/<pkg>/dependencies

Would you add an answer to say what solution (or workaround) you used? It might help anyone with the same problem.
