High: Uninstallable package
Triaged: This looks like a python3 ism - the syntax for except changed to be
   except typename as var
rather than
   except typename, var

the change happened mid 2.x but they finally banned the old one in Python 3.something.

Changed in screen-resolution-extra (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → High
status: New → Triaged
