Using Ubuntu 16.04, I have a problem with python3

$ python --version

python3 is already the newest version (3.5.1-3).
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer 
required:
  linux-headers-4.8.0-53 linux-headers-4.8.0-53-generic
  linux-image-4.8.0-53-generic linux-image-extra-4.8.0-53-generic
Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove them.

    Probably a broken system link sudo ln -s /usr/bin/python3.4 /usr/bin/python3 or similar locate your python 3 binary and link it. – Panther Jun 30 '17 at 18:30
