Mailman 3 runs only on Python3 as far as I know.  That's definitely
going to be true for 3.1 and later.  Since the output below refers to
Django, I guess it's Postorius or HyperKitty that is being installed
here, so 2.7 is OK.  However, you should make sure that the
appropriate interpreter and stdlib are being used.

Following the recommendation here might be helpfu since you
encountered a network error.

That's a network problem of some kind.  It may be an error in the
bundler (trying to contact kgbvax or something), but more likely it's
a hiccup in the Internet, or a firewall issue.
