Ubuntu 18 is a pretty important platform.  It needs to work.

Looks like you do not have Python Gtk installed.

Python 3.8.0 (default, Dec  6 2019, 02:51:53) 
>>> gi.version_info  
(3, 32, 1)

I'm not much of a Gtk person, but it seems to me that your 3.26.1 should
be OK when my 3.32.1 works.

But you do not have python Gtk installed.

Are you sure you have the python Gtk, Gdk and GLib modules installed?

I have no idea what Ubuntu packages have those.  Sadly that is undocumented.

On Gentoo it is in dev-python/pygobject

Finding doc problems, like this one, is the purpose of testing.  The
doc needs to better tell you what to install, and the error message 
needs to be better at telling you what you have yet to install.
