fromstring was deprecated since python 3.2 and removed in 3.9. The problem can be fixed by backporting this patch:

@elafon Thanks, updated.

The package needs to add python-setuptools as a required install and make dependency. Otherwise, the package building and installation will end with errors.

I suggest this patch to fix this issue:

Moving to python3 has broken wokd (and presumably other packages) that rely on a python2 version of websockify. I suppose the solution is to build packages for both python versions.

I have not used this package in a very long time and I have no desire to maintain it at this point. I'm disowning it so someone else can pick it up.

please update the python dependency to python3 (python). i've just tested everything works (at least for me).
