I just tried to recreate this but they happily work together.
I realized that your apache is slightly outdated with 2.4.18-2ubuntu3.8 beign current now.
But none of the changes since then addressed this issue.

And I see in your logs that on 2018-04-13 13:34:27 you also installed both just fine.

Is that reproducible, which means when you run "apt upgrade" it again fails the same way?

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

There isn't really enough information here for a developer to confirm this issue is a bug, or to begin working on it, so I am marking this bug Incomplete for now.

If you can provide exact steps so that a developer can reproduce the original problem, then please add them to this bug and change the status back to New.
