you've not run the standard installation process, which is entirely
automated.  i didn't give you the full list because you don't need
most of them, you're not running the HDL, just the simulator.  here's
the full list of dependencies:

of course that assumes you've upgraded to python 3.7 rather than
arbitrarily picked "a latest version of python3 which could be 3.8 or
3.9 depending on your OS" - (hence why we standardised on debian/10 as
the development OS, so as to avoid *exactly* the problems you're
running into)

and, argh, yes, you've installed python 3.9 which is only in
debian/testing, so you can't use the above script without modifying

regardless: running "python3 setup.py develop" should pick up that
there are dependencies - including astor - which is in the install


line 16, there.

you *must not* create arbitrary random symbolic links - you *really
do* have to run that command "python3 setup.py develop" in order to
trigger it to install the dependencies.

the "normal" installation process is incredibly simple.

step 1: run this script

step 2: run this script

unfortunately you've deviated from "normal" by using a
non-standardised version of python.
