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
