Thanks for updating, but I still get failures. And I asked pytest
upstream about possible fixes of the 3.X branch, which they are not
going to do:

The current failure in python-astropy is
E UsageError: Plugin specs must be a ','-separated string or a
list/tuple of strings for plugin names. Given: <module
which blocks the whole suite. Other packages have errors that really
look strange (data files are missing, submodules not found etc). Sure,
that all could be workarounded somehow, but in a few weeks the next
update of a dependency may make trouble again.
We will publish Debian Buster not earlier than summer/fall next year,
and this is just ~6-9 months before Python 2 EOL. I don't want to put
too many efforts in keeping this alive.
