Debian Bullseye


Just upgraded my Debian box from Buster to Bullseye.
Unfortunately Bullseye has phased out some parts of Python2.7 including pip and virtualenv.
So Mailpile stops because it can’t find some libraries that were installed locally that are not in Bullseye.
Has anyone else encountered this? Any advice?

To elaborate - I’ve always run Mailpile in a virtualenv so my first reaction was to use pip to install the missing libraries in the virtualenv. But I can’t do it because the 2.7 pip is gone.


I now have Mailpile working on Debian Bullseye. I’ve posted suggestions here
