I'm writing an app for Ubuntu App Showdown and I also used to get this. At least in my case it turned out I had some small python snippets (for testing various stuff) in a directory under the project that were the problem ( i.e. variety/snippets/) - after I removed them, all ran fine.
Here's with --verbose:

I can attach the zipped project as it used to fail, if you request it.
