What is the problem you experienced? I use mythtv-light to build my 
fronntends and backends and there is no problem with mythweb or with 
python scripts, such as the metadata lookup.

There is a package python-is-python3 in Ubuntu 22.04 to create a link so 
that you can run python and it will call python3, or you can create a 
link that does the same. I did that, I don't know if it is necessary.

I did not run any python3 conversion.
