Depending on the upgrade process taken, it is possible for the older /usr/share/virt-manager/virtinst directory to be left on the system. If this happens, the util.py from the older code will be found when launching virt-manager, and the startup will fail.
To resolve this issue, the older /usr/share/virt-manager/virtinst directory should be deleted.
