I remember doing this, it was a problem with python. I think it wanted
python2 but it found python3, something like that. I couldn't really
understand the script, it was python inside bash so instead of
spending years trying to fix it I moved /usr/bin/python to
/usr/bin/python.bak and copied /usr/bin/python2 to /usr/bin/python.
This is a (really) -bad- solution, if you try it remember to restore
the files or something will surely go wrong.
