I was able to install rdiffweb until a few days ago. Now when I try I get the following:
timedicer@timedicer3:~/rdiffweb-master$ sudo python setup.py install
Traceback (most recent call last):

Make sure you're either building from a fully intact git repository or PyPI tarballs. Most other sources (such as GitHub's tarballs, a git checkout without the .git folder) don't contain the necessary metadata and will not work.
I could use some help getting around it please.
