​I just tried this update myself and got the same error. The GNU compilers
have a much shorter line length limit than the Intel compilers. What this
means is that this update was not tested with the GNU compilers before it
was released, so another update will be required to fix that.

For the time being, you can use update_amber to revert to Amber/6 like so:

./update_amber --revert-to Amber/6

Then recompile (making sure to say *no* to updates when asked).

​Hope this helps, and thanks for the report,
