[New-bugs-announce] [issue38123] Unable to find Python3.8.0b4 on Ubuntu 19004 desktop

New submission from Jonathan Gossage <jgossage at gmail.com>:

I installed Python 3.8.0b4 manually on Ubuntu 19.04 desktop. After the installation that appeared to run OK, I was unable to find python3.8, even though it had been installed in /usr/local/bin and that directory was on the path. I got the result:

jgossage at jgossage-XPS-8700:~$ python3.8 --version
bash: /usr/bin/python3.8: No such file or directory

There was no sign of Python in /etc/alternatives so, I assume that Linux alternatives were not part of the problem. I had no problem finding other files such as pip3.8.
