py3status v3.28 – goodbye py2.6-3.4

The newest version of py3status starts to enforce the deprecation of Python 2.6 to 3.4 (included) initiated by Thiago Kenji Okada more than a year ago and orchestrated by Hugo van Kemenade via #1904 and #1896.

Thanks to Hugo, I discovered a nice tool by @asottile to update your Python code base to recent syntax sugars called pyupgrade!

Debian buster users might be interested in the installation war story that @TRS-80 kindly described and the final (and documented) solution found.
