I’m trying to install lsst_sims from source on a CentOS 7 VM. I started by running the “newinstall.sh” script and then installing the main LSST distribution (using eups distrib install -t v13_0 lsst_distrib) which all seemed to go smoothly. However, I get an error when installing lsst_sims. I used the command:
eups distrib install lsst_sims -t sims
The error occurs while installing sims_alertsim:
[ 86/88 ] sims_alertsim 2.3.4.sims+3 ...

It looks to be a test failure, but I am new to the LSST software and have no idea where to start with troubleshooting it. Does anyone know what might have gone wrong?
Edit: another thing I noticed, in case it’s relevant, is that if I re-run the installation, the test still fails, but the numbers in the “Time from first to last event” line are completely different this time around.
