I was able to install swig 3.0.11 and to reproduce this error. Sometimes, swig can get a little confused and interpret a class as virtual even though it should be treated as concrete. In these cases, it defines a python class constructor (__init__) that raises this exception.
It its supposed to be possible to override this behavior with the swig directive
There is a little bit of uncertainty here because the class is templated. But I tried every combination I could think of, and I cannot get rid of the “abstract constructor” problem.
I will try to condense this to an example I can submit to the swig developers for debugging. In the mean time, don’t use swig 3.0.11 to build PyTrilinos.
