Bug Description

After installing apt-btrfs-snapshot in Ubuntu 18.04 I got following error messages:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/apt-btrfs-snapshot", line 33, in <module>
    from apt_btrfs_snapshot import AptBtrfsSnapshot
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/apt_btrfs_snapshot.py", line 28, in <module>
    from distutils.spawn import find_executable
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'distutils.spawn'

This was resolved by manually installing 'python3-distutils'.

The dependency should be added to the package.

I have installed apt-btrfs-snapshot 3.5.1 today but the dependencies was not installed automatically.

I still need to install 'python3-distutils' manually.

This also affects 19.10 so I'm guessing this is waiting on a fix from Debian? The noted debbug is for a similar issue, missing this same depends, but it is for a different package.
