I’m new to Dynare and I downloaded it following the directions here https://github.com/DynareTeam/dynare on my Ubuntu 16.04 machine. When I try to run the example1.mod file, Matlab finishes preprocessing and I get the following error message.
The class ‘dates’ is used in its own class definition as a base class, property value, or attribute
value. This is not allowed.
Error in global_initialization (line 408)
options_.dataset.firstobs = dates();
Error in example1 (line 24)
Error in dynare (line 267)
I’ve searched online but cannot find anyone else with a similar error message. Is there something obvious that I am missing or does anyone know how to fix this? Thank you in advance.
