I know it is a stupid question, but you say symbolic shows in "pkg list" and
do not mention if it is really loaded.
Does pkg load symbolic change that behaviour?
Or may be some dependency (ginac) is not installed, can you check that (if
that is the case and your symbolic comes from the ubuntu packages it would be
a bug to be reported to ubuntu).

It is loaded (pkg 'describe' 'symbolic') and I double checked to make sure I have ginac (libginac1.5) and cln (libcln6) as well as the respective -dev packages for both. I will try the ubuntu community and see if any answers come and get back to you.

Thanks everyone.
