Bug Description

Using python3.8 system default for ubuntu 20.04, I cannot run gitinspector from the repository. Will try to install it from github repository. Found this ( ) that states it is an issue already fixed but probably not in the available version.

Traceback (most recent call last):

    load_entry_point('gitinspector==0.4.4', 'console_scripts', 'gitinspector')()

Thanks for reporting and help making Ubuntu better.

I get the same error message when attempting to run gitinspector on 20.04, so marking confirmed. I've also added a bug watch for the Debian bug you found under also affects.

As the other bug report mention, if the issue has been fixed, it might be possible to get at Stable Release Update applied to 20.04, please see for more information on this.
