Bug Description


python3-pip is missing a dependency on the split-out package python3-distutils, causing an ImportError when calling pip3.

[Test Case]

Call pip3 and see the ImportError (without having python3-distutils installed).

[Regression Potential]

python3-pip wasn't updated for a long time, and the bundled wheels are out of date, and new dependencies need to be added, other need to get updates. This looks fine so far, as no new reports show up for the package in Debian sid and Ubuntu cosmic.

Hello Matthias, or anyone else affected,

Accepted python-pip into bionic-proposed. The package will build now and be available at in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed.Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-bionic to verification-done-bionic. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-bionic. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.
