Issue merging files after Multi_run

Asked by Max Fieg on 2020-06-12

I am trying to use multi_run to do compile a large amount of statistics. I am doing some simple DM annihilation. However, after running the command, after trying to merge the LHE files I am met with the error:
########################################################
INFO: Pythia8 shower finished after 10 seconds.

This same issue was reported earlier (https://answers.launchpad.net/mg5amcnlo/+question/293802) but the answer is not helping me; my issue seems identical to the one that this user reported. Here is my Debug file, any help is appreciated .
