In Ubuntu, you can find all the documentation in the /usr/share/doc
directory. Therefore, for python you will find it
in /usr/share/doc/python. Furthermore, to find the location of some
documentation, in the terminal enter dpkg -L <package-name>, in your
case, just type dpkg -L python and you will be rewarded with paths for
all python related documentation.

Does this help?
