Crashing ROOT during garfield run

Im using a garfield GEM file, and when I run it, I get a crash.
Im not getting the same problem with the same file in another computer, so im wondering if it is a problem with ROOT, since the OS was updated from ubuntu 16 to 20.
Can someone maybe help me with a fix?
The terminal bash is as follows:

#0 0x00007fe9981c0caf in __GI___wait4 (pid=10917, stat_loc=stat_loc
entry=0x7ffc2dc30218, options=options

#8 0x00007fe999cdb5ca in Garfield::ViewDrift::Plot(bool, bool) () from /usr/local/lib/
#9 0x0000558aa9017394 in main ()

The terminal identifies the problems in lines #7/8.

Thanks for the help

@hschindl can most probably help you


did you change your ROOT installation after moving to Ubuntu 20?
