By decision of another network administrator the operating system was upgraded to debian 10, due to this the installation we had of MediaGoblin stopped working.
I have been trying to install from scratch a new installation to migrate the data and even update the version I had installed to Python3.7 but I always have the following error after the compilation and installation of all packages are done well:

(mediagoblin)mediagoblin@nosredserver:/home/nosred/$ ./bin/gmg
