I found this explanation:  
 ... because of the following code from line 7 of setup.py in the traceback:

version = re.search('__version__ = "(.+?)"', f.read()).group(1)

This should work if the search pattern was a bytes object. A byte literal can be created by simply pre-pending the string literal with a b like the following:
