I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this question. I tried to send an email to but got it back from the server. I am trying to install Sage on an Ubuntu (18.04.5 LTS), 64-bit. I tried to install (but couldn't) from the tar file on the webpage. The crash appears after executing ./sage while trying to install it and gives the following log. Do you have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks, Javi
