Irrespective of running python version (2.7.18rc1 or 3.8.2) on Ubuntu 20.04, acloud fails as below:

$ acloud setup --host

    subtask.Run(force_setup=args.force)
  File "/tmp/Soong.python_ym5s7lig/acloud/setup/base_task_runner.py", line 97, in Run
    if self.ShouldRun() or force_setup:
  File "/tmp/Soong.python_ym5s7lig/acloud/setup/host_setup_runner.py", line 67, in ShouldRun
    if not utils.IsSupportedPlatform():
  File "/tmp/Soong.python_ym5s7lig/acloud/internal/lib/utils.py", line 1218, in IsSupportedPlatform
    dist = platform.linux_distribution()[0]



Why does acloud seemingly always use the latest python version on the system (3.8.2 in my case) rather than the one set to local python? (platform.linux_distribution API has been removed in Python 3.8)

Building and running acloud-dev worked around this issue, but I needed to ensure that python2 was the active version on my system.

Here's a set of commands which worked on my Ubuntu 20.04 workstation to launch cuttlefish. YMMV.

# Check python major version is 2 due to incompatibility in acloud-dev which python3
python_major_ver=$(python -V 2>&1 | sed s/Python\ // | cut -c 1)
if [ -z "${python_major_ver}" ]; then
  echo "no Python installed. Exiting"
  exit 1
fi
if [ ${python_major_ver} -ne 2 ]; then
  echo "Python version is "${python_major_version} " but must be 2. Exiting"
  exit 1
fi

cd ../../../../..
. build/envsetup.sh
lunch aosp_cf_x86_phone-userdebug
m
# build and use acloud-dev due to acloud python errors on Ubuntu 20.04
# (it uses python 3 even if python 2 version is active)
m acloud
# set memory to 2GB
# default 6GB fails to boot on Ubuntu 20.04 due to crosvm errors (see Launcher log)
acloud-dev create --yes --verbose --local-instance --local-image --hw-property memory:2g

While using this set of commands, looks like acloud-dev trying to start,
but asking some password. I can'u understand what password it asking and
where to set it:


======================== console output start ========================
elman@lego:~/aosp$ acloud-dev create --yes --verbose --local-instance
--local-image --hw-property memory:2g

I manually installed cuttlefish. But when I reached further with acloud I got to know that Cuttlefish only works on Intel cpus and not on Amd. I will try google cloud solution.
