Bug Description

Hello,
I've uninstalled all the previous versions of MG from my laptop. I'm installing MG5_aMC_v2_5_5. While hitting the command "install pythia8", I get the following error

Command "install pythia8 " interrupted in sub-command: "install pythia8" with error: InvalidCmd : Installation of lhapdf6 failed.

I've tried to solve the problem by installing boost then lhapdf successively but when I "install boost" but I get the error
Command "install boost " interrupted in sub-command:
"install boost" with error:
InvalidCmd : Installation of boost failed.

and then when I "install lhapdf6" but I get the error
Command "install lhapdf6" interrupted with error:
InvalidCmd : Installation of lhapdf6 failed.

I went to the ".../MG5_aMC_v2_5_5/HEPTools/HEPToolsInstallers.py" file and checked that the links for downloading both boost and lhapdf6 are working, and found that they do.
I downloaded both LHAPDF-6.1.6.tar.gz and boost_1_59_0.tar.gz and copied them in the directory ".../MG5_aMC_v2_5_5/HEPTools/" and extracted them to both the subdirectories ".../MG5_aMC_v2_5_5/HEPTools/lhapdf6/" and ".../MG5_aMC_v2_5_5/HEPTools/boost/" but when I "install pythia8" I get the following error concerning boost
Could not download data at '/tmp/tmp_wH7AC/boost_1_59_0.tar.gz'.
Command "install pythia8 " interrupted in sub-command:
"install pythia8" with error:
InvalidCmd : Installation of pythia8 failed.

Finally, when I "install Delphes" I get the following error
>> Compiling examples/CaloGrid.cpp
>> Building CaloGrid
tmp/examples/CaloGrid.o: In function `main':
CaloGrid.cpp:(.text.startup+0xd62): undefined reference to `TString::TString(std::__cxx11::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>, std::allocator<char> > const&)'

Would you help for debugging
Cheers,
