Hi, plumed only officially support NAMD 2.9. For later version I have
post a patch in plumed user group:

However I suggest running metadynamics in NAMD with its colvars module.
Both metadynamics algorithms in colvars and plumed are actually the
same, but their implementations may differ. The difference includes
energy units, SIGMA(plumed) vs hillWidth(colvars) and so on.
