RuntimeError: Unable to compile C++ code with dijitso

I’ve installed fenics on a new laptop. GalliumOS on a chromebook. Anyone know what’s causing this error?

RuntimeError: Expecting a string or list of strings, not {’/usr/lib/petscdir/3.7.3/x86_64-linux-gnu-real/lib’, ‘/usr/lib/openmpi/lib’, ‘/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/hdf5/openmpi/lib’, ‘/usr/lib/slepcdir/3.7.2/x86_64-linux-gnu-real/lib’}.

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Try to use the docker. It’s more reliable
