I just resolved this issue, you're right I did have two petsc4py's
(manually removing the one in /usr/local/... did the trick) and I undid
every installation step i took for Firedrake. Seems the issue was me
installing FEniCS with sudo apt-get install fenics and installing Firedrake
dependencies via sudo pip install ... gave me problems.
PS - as for the other e-mail, I will get back to you shortly on that
