That's not what it means. Usually, this means that we are trying to run a 
program using AVX instructions on a computer that doesn't support them. 
Virtual machines are a common cause as they often misrepresent the 
processor they are emulating. We already added some code to work around 
it, but apparently not enough for your case...

See this discussion, which seems very close to your case:

To debug this, we will need the rest of the information as asked in
(in particular config.log, cat /proc/cpuinfo, gdb disassembly to know 
which illegal instruction is there, etc)
