I assume you installed Kwant from pip, since if you installed it from conda/conda-forge you would probably not have problems with MUMPS. In pip Kwant is distributed from source codes and needs to find MUMPS in the system. To build it, you need to install:
apt install build-essential python3-dev libmumps-seq-dev pip install kwant sympy matplotlib
Then on a fresh Ubuntu 20.04 everything seems to install fine and without extra configuration.
Hope that helps, Slava

I'm running kwant on WSL2 Ubuntu 20.04 and I followed along with your installation procedure. I've tried to follow along with the examples you provide on the website and the workshop you had a couple of months ago and when it's time to calculate smatrix.transmission(1, 0) for a very simple 1-D scattering problem it doesn't. When I run the python test I get a few errors back, mainly from the test_mumps.py source. I understand it's a bit vague said in this way but I have tried to copy and paste the screenshot of my error and the text file but it seems the post window doesn't allow such thing. I'm a beginner, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot,
