The reason is again related to upper constraints as what happens is old enough version of pyghmi (from mitaka upper constraints) is installed with most recent virtualbmc (not in upper constraints), and those versions are incompatible.

I can attest jobs are broken for stable/mitaka on ironic-lib as well — our jobs build docs unconditionally, and ironic-lib had no docs in Mitaka.
