Shebang should point to Python 2

Bug Description

I think we should change the shebang line to ensure Python 2 usage, as I have 3 set as default. This will produce and error as the statvfs package is deprecated, but available, in 2 and removed in 3. The error this produces in Deja Dup is "could not understgand duplicity version".

At a minimum, we need:
1. The specific steps or actions you took that caused you to encounter the problem.
2. The behavior you expected.
3. The behavior you actually encountered (in as much detail as possible).

Unsure how to reproduce the issue there, "python" default to 2.7 on bionic when that one is installed (which is the case when using duplicate since it's a depends). Did you manually change your default python version and if so how did you do it?
