Laszlo:
 To install python3-distutils should resolve this issue. I expect BaseTools 
build functionality doesn't depend on the third party python lib. So, I suggest 
to check whether python3-distutils is the native python library. If it is 
native python library, why Ubuntu18 doesn't include it. I will work with Dandan 
to collect more information. 

Thanks
