According to https://portal.hdfgroup.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=48809672 one can not build parallel HDF5 with support for the C++ interface. You have to decide if you would like to use either parallel HDF5 without support for the C++ interface, or serial HDF5 with support for the C++ interface.

Please note that the centrally installed h5py packages (Python bindings for HDF5) is linked against a serial HDF5 installation. If you would like to use parallel h5py, then you would need to install mpi4py and h5py locally, using a parallel HDF5 installation.
