I remember now, calibre was one of the reasons I still have a lot of
python 2.7 packages. I haven't installed the other package, so haven't
come across this particular problem.

Not related to this; when there is a calibre update, it usually fails
with pkg_rolling-replace, as PYTHON_VERSION_DEFAULT is 37 and it may
miss updating a used package; I then temporarily revert to 27 and
update only calibre.
