please don't attach error logs as messages. Just copy & paste the error
text into your mail.

You are hitting a bug in meson. Since you installed meson using pip, you
have a very new meson, which you are using with a rather old python.
It's likely that this combination is not tested very well.
But it *should* work. Maybe you can get more help from Ubuntu users.

You are using an old mkosi version that doesn't know about newer Fedora.
Either update, or switch to Ubuntu images as you say.

You can run arbitrary scripts during image creation, so in principle you
could do 'pip install' then. But it quickly becomes very messy and complicated.
