ok. if you have any version of python 3 installed, that’d be a bug. but also this error messaging could be improved cc @hundreds-father-404
i can prob make a quick fix to just warn if it’s not found

Huh, this is the most up to date version of the pants script? That shouldn’t be happening..

i had just pulled master. I ended up getting past this point. It turned out that python3 wasn’t on my path. nbd. now blocked by something else

What surprises me is why it’s trying to run
python3
. It should only ever try bin names like
python3.7
.
