Default Installation/Compiling issues with SOWFA

CallumG is on a distinguished road

I'd firstly like to say I am very new to OpenFOAM and Linux so please be gentle with me! I'm sure most of my problems are due to being incredibly green but anyway...

Essentially what I am trying to understand is the process of getting SOWFA to compile running the ./Allwmake command as per the installation instructions. I have read the README files and the NREL presentation slides aong with lots of forum posts, and seem to be comming up against some conflicting information. At present when I run the ./Allwclean command, returned is a series of:

./Allwclean: line <#>: rmdepall: command not found

and the ./Allwmake command returns the attached.

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS and OpenFOAM-dev (From OpenFOAM-in-Box-19.10v1). I had opted to use the OpenFOAM in a box from CFD-support as I'm new to Linux and this seemed the most forgiving approach to start with, the OpenFOAM core version is v6 according to CDF-support's website. Now I know from the README files in SOWFA it specifies "OpenFOAM Version: 2.3.x or 2.4.x", however from the NREL presentation slides it states "Make sure you have OpenFOAM 2.0 or higher installed". So I suppose my first question is do I need to start again and download a much older version of OpenFOAM? If so I'd like to know how to install on my OS, the following link suggests my version of ubuntu isn't supported

If indeed my current version of OpenFOAM is adequate I can only assume I have some error when I editted the .bash_profile file . I changed:

15) export inst_loc - to where my OpenFOAM installation is
16) export spack location - to my home directory

41) export OPENFOAM_VERSION=dev
44) export WM_PROJECT_USER_DIR - again to where my OpenFOAM installation is

Any and alll help would be very welcome on this!

Thanks in advance,
