[Opm] Problem installing OPM binaries

HI Markus,
Thank you for that suggestion.

We managed to get OPM Flow installed by restarting Ubuntu and going through the list of commands again.

I did wonder if there was a problem of Ubuntu version and dependencies from the error but whatever it was it has gone away. It may be that a mistake was made during the commands and something did not get copied over.

Here is the output from the two things you asked for.

I did take a look at the ppa. Are your sure that you are on Ubuntu 18.04? The packages for it seem to be built against dune 2.6 now. The Dune packages listed must be some older ones built for the opm PPA.

Can you please do:

sudo apt-get update

and then post the output of:

lsb-release -a

apt-cache policy libopmsimulators1

this should be 2019.10-rfinal-2-bionic
