Public bug reported: I use the s3cmd package to securely pull data from amazon S3.
As of the Ubuntu 18 build 18.04.201804100 i could still see that it was working ok. Now, as of the 11th build, I get the following error attempting to use s3cmd File "/usr/bin/s3cmd", line 60, in <module> from distutils.spawn import find_executable ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'distutils.spawn' I have tracked the problem back to possible issue with distutils no longer being included as an installable package. I am not 100% sure this is the problem, but when I check my dev box which was built 8am EST on the 10th, i can apt-cache policy see that i have python-distutils. Can anyone confirm that s3cmd package is broken. Steps to reproduce: Install a fresh copy of ubuntu 18.04.201804100 apt-get install -y s3cmd execute the s3cmd. EXPECTED RESULT: A list of ways to use the s3cmd BUG RESULT: Error stating - File "/usr/bin/s3cmd", line 60, in <module> from distutils.spawn import find_executable ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'distutils.spawn' ** Affects: s3cmd (Ubuntu) Importance: Undecided Status: New -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1763398 Title: s3cmd package requires python distutils package To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/s3cmd/+bug/1763398/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
