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.
