Hello everyone,

I've been building some minimal python docker images for a while and a few days ago an error popped out in my CI when building python 3.8 on debian sid. The error happens when trying to install pip with the usual:

curl -fsSL | python3.8 - setuptools

The message:

ERROR: Exception:

You can check the full CI output[0] or the building script if you need to[1].

I've checked for similar bugs and I found #28046 but I don't know if this is related or not.

Thanks for the great work and I'm looking forward to help you fix this issue.
