Hi, I took over as maintainer last year, but I've never actually used the "setup.py" method to install. I always use debuild and install the resulting package. However from your log:
package init file 'terminatorlib/plugins/__init__.py' not found (or not a regular file)
There is no __init__.py file in that folder. In the setup.py file that folder is defined as a package and a package has to have an __init__.py file. I recommend you try creating that file (it can be completely empty, it just has to exist) and try again.

Can you help with this problem?
