I get the same as you.

Thank you for forwarding this. In the moment,  have no idea what the
problem is. Maybe you could set the environment var APT_CONFIG=/dev/null
before invoking Python to see if something weird is in your apt config?

Sure. Is on my todo list.

Yes. The idea is that any tools can autodetect the format of the tasks
files and this way handle format changes accurately.

So, if we have incompatible changes in the future, just update the
Format: line when you updated the format of the file. Default is the
'classic' format. I thought that (since #891188 affected only d-astro) I
was the only one actually using the non-downgrading version.
