Launching fish_config errors out on missing module

Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu Focal Fossa (development branch)
Release: 20.04

  Installed: 3.1.0-1
  Candidate: 3.1.0-1

Running fish_config within fish should launch a web page hosted locally that allows configuring the theme / prompt etc.

Instead of showing the web page, the command errors out with the following output:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/fish/tools/web_config/", line 11, in <module>
    from distutils.spawn import find_executable

Installing python3-distutils separately resolves the error above.

This is fixed with the latest commit to fish in Debian (requires python3-distutils)

This is fixed in 3.1.0-1.2, which was synced into Fossa before it was released.
