Visibility: error

The specified manual page contains a Python traceback.

This was probably caused by a call to help2man failing to correctly execute, likely due to an missing or incorrect PYTHONPATH environment variable.

Note that calls to generate manpages from binaries may succeed if the package being built is already installed in the build environment as might locate potentially old copy of the program under /usr/lib/python3. This is fairly common on maintainers' machines, for example. However, in environments where the package is not installed (such as most buildds), generating the manpage may fail and inject a traceback into the manual page.

The following 11 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 15 times (in any Lintian version).

We found 2 overrides. The tag performed 87% of the time.
