Hai Surender, 

Thanks for the reply. 

i've checked the Build-Depends that already contains python3 (and some others). 
I now also noticed that my last debian and build worked out. ( just finished 1 min ago )

Architecture: any
Multi-Arch: foreign
Depends: iproute2 [linux-any],
         lsb-base (>= 3.0-6),
         samba-libs (= ${binary:Version}),
         ${python3:Depends},        << the one i added as last. 
Recommends: ethtool [linux-any], python3-etcd, ${rados:Recommends}
Suggests: logrotate, lsof

So.. that was a search for me to get all right. 

Thanks for the replies guys. 

Have a great weekend, stay safe but go out, go bird watching something.. ;-) 
fresh air.

can you try updating the Build-Depends field with python3-minimal in the debian/control file.

I had come across not exactly the same build error but similar build issue, for SMB 4.14 on Rhel8.3.

Thank you,
Surender. A

Hai Martin, 

> How exactly does the build fail?
Well, i use cowbuild/pbuilder in Debian 10 and in the end lintian checks the packages and errors with.

E: ctdb: python-script-but-no-python-dep usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ctdb/ctdb_etcd_lock #!python3 
Even after i added in debian/control
${python3:Depends} for CTDB package

I really wished i had these skills todo that, i would then..
