hi o/

gibi noticed that the nova-ceph-multistore job started failing this morning
with ERROR: Cannot uninstall 'logutils'. It is a distutils installed project and thus we cannot accurately determine which files belong to it which would lead to only a partial uninstall.


we quickly identifed that python3-logutils was beeing pulled in by the devstack-plugin-ceph as a sideeffect fo installing ceph.

 functions-common:apt_get:1207            :   sudo DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive http_proxy= https_proxy= no_proxy= apt-get --option Dpkg::Options::=--force-confold --assume-yes install ceph libnss3-

The following additional packages will be installed:

  python3-singledispatch python3-soupsieve python3-tempita python3-waitress
  python3-webob python3-webtest python3-werkzeug

to adress this i have proposed a patch based on how we workaround unremovable python packages in devstack fixup_tools script
too the devstack-plugin-ceph repo to adress this.

untill that merges expect to see all ceph based jobs to fail when installing neutron.
