Issues Running Example "" in python, Linux

I’m using the python interface and I’m attempting to run “python3” at the folder ~/acados/examples/acados_python/getting_started under a virtualenv environment set up as in the instructions here: Python Interface — acados documentation. I’m running Ubuntu 20.04.6 LTS on an 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-.

I’m getting 2 separate warnings/errors that I’m unsure if they’re related.

  1. Warning:
WARNING: Gauss-Newton Hessian approximation with EXTERNAL cost type not possible!
got cost_type: EXTERNAL, hessian_approx: 'GAUSS_NEWTON.'
GAUSS_NEWTON hessian is only supported for cost_types [NON]LINEAR_LS.
If you continue, acados will proceed computing the exact hessian for the cost term.
Note: There is also the option to use the external cost module with a numerical hessian approximation (see `ext_cost_num_hess`).
OR the option to provide a symbolic custom hessian approximation (see `cost_expr_ext_cost_custom_hess`).
  1. Error:

Any help would be much appreciated!


this is your error, you should make this file executable:
