You seem to have both /usr/bin/rst2html5 from the python3-docutils
Debian package *and* /usr/local/bin/rst2html5 from the rst2html5 PyPi
package installed on your system, and Meson is apparently picking up
the latter rather than the former.
Please uninstall the PyPi version with "pip uninstall rst2html5" (or
something like that) and try again. Make sure you wipe out the build
directory to force Meson to look for binaries again.
