Lsst_sims install error CentOS7 (iconv)

I am trying to install lsst_sims packages (w_2020_06) but things went wrong on the step where the doxygen package is to be installed. Im using a remote machine ( which I have no root access to, so docker isn’t an option) running CentOS 7 (release 7.8.2003). The error is this

(lsst-scipipe-1a1d771) [agonzalez@titan lsst]$ eups distrib install lsst_sims -t sims_w_2020_06

The steps I was following were that ones in :

mkdir ~/lsst
cd ~/lsst
curl -OL
bash -ct
source ~/lsst/loadLSST.bash
eups distrib install lsst_sims -t sims_w_2020_06

I’ve attached the build.log too:
( from /home/agonzalez/lsst/stack/miniconda3-py37_4.8.2-1a1d771/EupsBuildDir/Linux64/doxygen-1.8.13.lsst3/build.log )

build.log (21.5 KB)

Based on the pre-requisites, this should run, but is failing. Does anyone have some advice for me to solve this or develop a workaround?

For a weekly tag of that vintage, please try following the directions in the relevant version of using the similarly-tagged version of

curl -OL

Not only should that solve this problem, it should also enable you to get binary tarball packages, making installation much faster.

I have added a note along these lines to the Confluence page.

It worked. Thanks!
Do I have to replace ‘master’ with ‘w.2020.06’ in the shebangtron line too?

While it is safer to use the tagged version, in fact it is fine to use master shebangtron.
