Unexpected keyword argument 'diagram_filter' when running MadSpin

Asked by Dylan Folsom on 2020-05-22

I'm attempting to generate the pair production of top quarks at NLO precision and decay them using MadSpin. Everything runs smoothly until MadSpin begins generating the production square matrix element, at which point it throws

    TypeError : __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'diagram_filter'

though I am not trying to filter out any diagrams and did not call generate with the --diagram_filter flag. Is this error due to madgraph itself, or I am generating the process incorrectly?

The run's debug.log is below:

Hi,

I can not reproduce this (even in 2.7.0)
If you look at this file:
https://bazaar.launchpad.net/~madteam/mg5amcnlo/series2.0/view/284/madgraph/core/diagram_generation.py
at line 1543, you will see that parameter is present.
So it likely means that your version is not a clean 2.7.0 and that you have some corrupted file for some reason.

I would therefore suggest to install a clean version of 2.7.2 and this issue should be gone.

Cheers,

Olivier
