I observe the same issue installing the parallel package for a self built Octave 7.1 on Ubuntu 20.04.
Applying @morgawr's patch on the released archive fixed the issue for me.
Here is the procedure I followed:

## Download the parallel package and the patch to e.g. ~/Downloads
cd ~/Downloads
tar -xvzf parallel-4.0.1.tar.gz
cd parallel-4.0.1
patch -p1 < ../parallel-4.0.1.patch
cd ..
tar -czvf parallel-4.0.1.tar.gz ./parallel-4.0.1
octave --eval "pkg install ./parallel-4.0.1.tar.gz"

CC'ing the maintainer of the package.
