./configure --prefix=/usr) on my Ubuntu 16.04 machine. It seems to work fine EXCEPT for packages that depended on python, like

ImportError: No module named apt_pkg
make uninstall available, I've tried manually removing files, and still when I try
apt --reinstall install python, Nothing gets overwritten and the python executable still gives the new
Any idea how to get the official repository version back??
