KSP_DIVERGED_INDEFINITE_PC

It appears the preconditioner is indefinite (has both positive and negative eigenvalues) and this Krylov method (KSPCG) requires it to be positive definite

Notes: This can happen with the PCICC preconditioner, use -pc_factor_shift_positive_definite to force the PCICC preconditioner to generate a positive definite preconditioner
