I'm retrieving "|GEOSDifference: TopologyException: found non-noded intersection between|" error when executing st_difference sql.

Followed an example:


|ERROR:  GEOSDifference: TopologyException: found non-noded intersection between LINESTRING (-5.67027 43.5374, -5.67085 43.5376) and LINESTRING (-5.67111 43.5377, -5.6706 43.5375) at -5.6708422794605911 43.537631835802237
