Upgrading Python3.5 to latest 3.8
Has anyone had luck upgrading Python 3.5 to latest 3.7/3.8?
I started doing it but then just got caught up in so many package conflicts.

//Upgrade Python to 3.8.3
apt-get install build-essential tk-dev libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev libreadline6-dev libdb5.3-dev libgdbm-dev libsqlite3-dev libssl-dev libbz2-dev libexpat1-dev liblzma-dev zlib1g-dev libffi-dev tar wget vim
echo 'export PYENV_ROOT="$HOME/.pyenv"' >> ~/.bashrc && echo 'export PATH="$PYENV_ROOT/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bashrc
git clone ~/.pyenv
source ~/.bashrc
pyenv install 3.8.3

According to the tutorial I followed I should now be on 3.8.3, but checking python3 -v I was still on 3.5.3
Updating some more packages...
wget -O /home/linaro/openssl_1.1.1g-1_armhf.deb
dpkg -i /home/linaro/openssl_1.1.1g-1_armhf.deb
wget -O /home/linaro/libc6_2.28-10_armhf.deb
dpkg -i /home/linaro/libc6_2.28-10_armhf.deb
wget -O /home/linaro/locales_2.28-10_all.deb
dpkg -i /home/linaro/locales_2.28-10_all.deb
wget -O /home/linaro/lighttpd_1.4.53-4_armhf.deb
dpkg -i /home/linaro/lighttpd_1.4.53-4_armhf.deb

Things stopped working around here.

wget -O /home/linaro/python3-minimal_3.7.3-1_armhf.deb
dpkg -i /home/linaro/python3-minimal_3.7.3-1_armhf.deb
wget -O /home/linaro/python3_3.7.3-1_armhf.deb
dpkg -i /home/linaro/python3_3.7.3-1_armhf.deb

I gave up near the end as the package conflicts started snowballing. apt wasn't detecting these updates and I had to start manually downloading the .deb files and installing it. Every package I upgraded started breaking more and eventually had to roll back to a backup.

How about some official TinkerBoard Python 3.8.3 support guys?
Debian officially supports at least 3.7.3 but TinkerBoard only supporting 3.5 officially...
oops...Python3 only up to 3.5.3 on Debian 9 Stretch...
No such limitations with Armbian
Armbian. Lightweight Debian Stretch or Ubuntu Bionic for Tinker Board.
