TI Wifi module driver compile fail on VM


I downloaded the VM as recomended and got the MangOH Red working. I want to use BT and WiFi so i purchased the IOT card with the TI wifi module on it. I am trying to follow the instructions from the github wifi page on the drivers for this module

When I get to the compiling of the yokto image_bin step I get an error:-

help2man: can’t get `–help’ info from automake-1.14

There is some error that halts the build related to help2man in the automake build. Searching the web it seems this may be related to the later ubuntu version of the VM for mangOH. Has anyone run into this issue?
