BTW, I used this
cp /var/log/syslog ./in-file.log

#!/usr/bin/env python3
import io
with open("in-file.log","r") as infile:
    for line in infile:

I got a different error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./test.py", line 4, in <module>
    for line in infile:
  File "/usr/lib/python3.8/codecs.py", line 322, in decode
    (result, consumed) = self._buffer_decode(data, self.errors, final)
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xd8 in position 897: 
invalid continuation byte

However, that doesn't have anything to do with your problem.
