Hello,
Thank you for the bug report. From your logs I see:

info: Executing deferred 'a2enconf javascript-common' for package javascript-common
ERROR: Conf javascript-common does not exist!

It seems that javascript-common may be a new dependency of some plugin for apache2, and since its not installed an error is reported. I was unable to reproduce the error with the default setup of apache2. Are there any additional modules or configuration modifications you use that may cause this?

In the meantime you may be able to fix this issue by installing javascript-common:

sudo apt install javascript-common

Thanks!

I also want to add that, after installing javascript-common, apache2 failed to start because it couldn't find the php7.4 module.

I solved the problema uninstalling apache and making a New install
I did that with apt autoremove apache2
 - - purge

I was able to reproduce the issue with the following:

lxc launch images:ubuntu/focal test-apache2
lxc exec test-apache2 bash

apt update && apt dist-upgrade -y
apt install ubuntu-release-upgrader-core apport pciutils apache2 javascript-common -y
rm /etc/apache2/conf-available/javascript-common.conf
do-release-upgrade

Miguel and others affected by this issue, do you know if you deleted javascript-common.conf at some point in the past?

FWIW, I see the same issue and to the best of my knowledge nothing has been done to the server to manually out of band remove files. Purging javascript-common and reinstalling does as noted above then produce a failure with PHP

apache2_reload: apache2: Syntax error on line 146 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: Syntax error on line 3 of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php7.4.load: Cannot load /usr/lib/apache2/modules/libphp7.4.so into server: /usr/lib/apache2/modules/libphp7.4.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Removing (and purging) all the PHP 7x packages allows apache 2 to start. Now to fix the apps it was fronting.
