Thanks, that's a good clue!
There's something messed up with my installation. argparse is
installed per libpython3.7-minimal. However if I simply start
python, then do a help(), it gives me a traceback. Simpleminded
forced reinstallation of python3.7, libpython3.7 idle-python3.7 idle3
libpython3-stdlib libpython3-minimal do not fix the problem :(
Will explore further...
