SX1261 status error on RAK7371


I have a RAK7371 with RAK5146 inside, connected to a Raspberry Pi 3B.

I followed the instructions here:

and here:

There were some warning messages during the build, but other than that the install went smoothly.

When I run the packet forwarder I get this error:

ERROR: sx1261_check_status: SX1261 status is not as expected: got:0x00 expected:0x22
ERROR: sx1261_load_pram: SX1261 status error
ERROR: failed to patch sx1261 radio for LBT/Spectral Scan
ERROR: [main] failed to start the concentrator

I also tried installing on a Linux virtual machine and it is giving me the same error.

Can someone please enlighten me what is going on?
