Currently, the paraview package also provides vtk and its python bindings.
When importing vtk in python, it currently fails with the message

/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/vtkmodules/../../../ undefined symbol: nc_open

It works when using the vtk package, but then paraview cannot be installed.

Additional info:
paraview: 5.7.0-3
netcdf: 4.7.3-1
python: 3.8.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
> import vtk
This task depends upon

Another workaround: LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ python -c 'import vtk'

This seems to be a linking error, it should be reported upstream I think.
