Summary0007173: Can't install python3-venv

I'm trying to create a venv, the python3 package tell me to install python3-venv which does not exists:

└─$ python3 -m venv .venv        
The virtual environment was not created successfully because ensurepip is not
available.  On Debian/Ubuntu systems, you need to install the python3-venv
package using the following command.

    apt-get install python3-venv

You may need to use sudo with that command.  After installing the python3-venv
package, recreate your virtual environment.

Failing command: ['/home/mdk/.venv/bin/python3', '-Im', 'ensurepip', '--upgrade', '--default-pip']

└─$ sudo apt-get install python3-venv                                                                                                                                                                                                    1 ⨯

Make sure you've run apt update; Are you still seeing this issue because I can't reproduce it here.
