Thanks for the report.
It is caused by:
$ head /usr/bin/hg -n 20
^^ default 3.9
libdir = '../lib/python3.8/site-packages'
^^ but really need 3.8
No surprise is not working.
A simple workaround is:
$ cp /usr/bin/hg /usr/local/bin/
$ sed -i -e "1 s/python3$/python3.8/" /usr/local/bin/hg
$ hg --version
