Wow, what an oversight.

This just a bug in setup, in that it creates a python-sip 6.5.0-1 
package, even though it doesn't have an install line (and so there's no 
path to download it from, so if we produce a solution including it, the 
download is just going to fail)

picard, pulseaudio-equalizer, python-pykde4 seem to be the effected 

Should be fixed in setup 2.917, which doesn't add that bogus package to 
the data model, so the solution includes python-sip 4.19.6-1, which 
pulls in python2-sip 4.19.6-1
