I recently started to use FlexGet again, now the latest version requires Python3.5.
According to flexget.com I should install this easily via sudo apt-get install python3.5. But unfortunately, this package is not available in the repository.
osmc@osmc:~$ sudo apt-get install python3.5

E: Unable to locate package python3.5
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'python3.5'
Does it still need to be added by the Debian developers or is there another way?
My fault, you are totally right. I thought it was on the UpgradeActions page: UpgradeActions | FlexGet But according to the InstallWizard pages it is not required and it should work with anything from 2.7 or newer. So I can safely install it without messing with Python! Linux | FlexGet
Reviving this old topic because I have the same question: why can we not install Python3.5?
It is now the recommended version for Flexget. Yes, it works with 2.7 but I have hit a problem/bug and need to upgrade Flexget, it is being recommended I test with 3.
EDIT: I can install 3.4 so I’ll test with that version.
Because OSMC is currently based on Debian Jessie and the latest version of Python 3 in the Debian Jessie repository is Python 3.4. Once OSMC makes the switch to Debian Stretch then Python 3.5 is included in the repository.
