This appears to be a(n old?) Py2-specific test, which won't byte-
compile with Py3 because of the language changes in between.  However,
as this is simply a testcase, it doesn't really have to be installed at
all.  FWIW, Fedora just removes the tests entirely, and I would
recommend the same.  Presuming you are using python3-wheel (since
pylint 2.x does not support Py2), try the following:

src_install() {
    cd ${B}
    find ${D}${PYTHON3_SITELIB}/pylint/test/ -delete
