The whole transition from v2.x to v3.x for python has been a terrible
mess. Version issues are the most frustrating aspect of Python and one
reason I've never embraced the language.

Given that Ubuntu 16.04 was end of life in April 2021, my recommendation
would be to upgrade to ubuntu 21.04. That version seems to have a more
consistent Python environment (based on v3). It also has newer ciaro,
hafbuzz and other libs used by Emacs which will likely work better and
once Emacs 28.0 is released, will have the gccjit libs necessary for
native comp etc.
