Something I see beginners make occasionally when defining functions without arguments is this:

def f:

Right now it just gives an "invalid syntax", would be nice to get an "expected '('".

I will try to give this a go! Should be a matter of making the '(' token an expected one.

Pablo, did you intend to backport to 3.10 or should this be closed?

Normally we don't backport new errors to old versions so we can close this. Thanks for the ping!
