I am not sure if this helps but I have tried building and changing the alpine version to latest/3.14.0 and this installed python3.9 by default which fixes the auto completion issue. For the current version 3.13.5, even doing apk update still installs python3.8. However, I do not know if pwncat relies on anything that is only available in alpine 3.13.5. Perhaps you be better informed if there are such dependencies.

We can add apk update in the current Dockerfile to install the latest python3 package for the current alpine image I do not have much experience with docker, I will test it first.

RUN apk update && apk add --upgrade python3
