The bzr package appears to be broken by Python 2.7.12 (2.7.13 is in Arch currently).

Upstream has a fix available:

The fix is due for release in bzr 2.7.1, but I can't find any expected release date.

Bzr being broken is inconvenient, since it also breaks all "package-bzr" packages from AUR. Normally you could get the fix by installing bzr-bzr, but since bzr is self-hosting doing so requires a working bzr...

It would be nice if this patch could be applied to the Arch package while waiting for upstream to release the fix proper.
This task depends upon
