Error when building pynq2.5.4 image - ...python3 sdist


When I was trying to build the PYNQ 2.5.4 image for the Zedboard, with prebuilt image * PYNQ rootfs arm v2. 5 , the following error occurs…

I am using Ubuntu16.04.4, Vivado/SDK/SDx/Petalinux 2019.1

… anyone would know why… is it a host related issue or something changed in the upstream
