Ok. As root, find out where forkpty is in your system and then look at the permissions of all the directories above it in the hierarchy to determine if it is available to the user running the program.

you mean by 'which forkpty'?
if so there appears to be no forkpty even when I am logged in as root. I saw forkpty is part of glibc. I updated glibc. I have glibc2 which I had before as well, according to man page this should be ok.

No, I mean by using the find command (looking for both files and directories).
