Thanks Giulia,

In the P.S. we see the error message in 'tests/test-suite.log'.

As expected, the problem is indeed in Ghostscript, which is missing one its own initialization files (something like a configuration file in data analysis).

This has probably happened during the update of your dependencies as you described earlier. Can you uninstalling Ghostscript and then re-installing it again? Afterwards, re-run 'make check' to see if the error remains or not.

Hopefully an un-install and a clean install will replace all the missing files and will fix this problem. If that doesn't work, try searching this error message in your particular environment to see what other people have reported on the internet.

Ultimately, Ghostscript is not used as a library in Gnuastro, ConvertType just calls the Ghostscript executable ('gs'), with the command that is shown at the end of the error message. So you can safely run 'sudo make install' in Gnuastro. Afterwards, when you uninstall and reinstall Ghostscript (or do any other changes to it based on other checks), you can just run

astconvertt img.fits -oimg.pdf

And see if it works or not. It would be good to report the solution in the bug-gnuastro@gnu.org mailing list so others also find your solution in the future ;-).

Let us know how it goes,

GPL Ghostscript 9.55.0: Can't find initialization file gs_init.ps.
astconvertt: the Ghostscript command (printed after this message) to convert the EPS file to PDF was not successful! The EPS file ('crop_section.pdf.ps') is left if you want to convert it through any other means (for example the 'epspdf' program). The Ghostscript command was: gs -q -o crop_section.pdf -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dDEVICEWIDTHPOINTS=285 -dDEVICEHEIGHTPOINTS=137 -dPDFFitPage crop_section.pdf.ps
FAIL convertt/fitstopdf.sh (exit status: 1)
