unable to install ocssw on mac

I installed seadas 8.3.10 for MacOS Ventura 13.5, however when I try to install ocssw processors, it is giving error.
execution exception: java.io.IOException: install_ocssw failed with exit code 127.
Check log for more details.
env: python3: No such file or directory

You need Python (3.6 or later) and Python requests package (v2.18.0 or later) for install_ocssw to work. See https://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov/downloads/

If you plan to run OCSSW on command line, you also need to add two lines to your .bashrc
See Command Line Configuration at the bottom of the download page https://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov/downloads/

Does your Mac have Intel chip or Apple chip?

Is this Mac the same Mac as in this post? -- viewtopic.php?p=16235#p16221
