[New-bugs-announce] [issue42574] Travis can't build the 3.8 branch right now

New submission from Brandt Bucher <brandtbucher at gmail.com>:

Travis seems to be using the wrong Python executable for (at least) the "make -j4 regen-all" step on the 3.8 branch. I have a hunch it's using the system python3 executable (3.5?). It causes the following failure when building:

python3 ./Tools/scripts/update_file.py ./Include/graminit.h ./Include/graminit.h.new
  File "./Tools/clinic/clinic.py", line 1772
    filename_new = f"{filename}.new"
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
Makefile:574: recipe for target 'clinic' failed
make: *** [clinic] Error 1

Recent examples:


I know Travis has been fairly problematic for us in the past.
