Bug Description

After the removal of the unity8 stack from the Ubuntu archive, it seems apparmor now has a set of Breaks/Replaces on various components used by unity8, and thus makes using the continued work of the UBports team to get Unity8 usable on PCs, difficult.

It also seems quite inappropriate for something as low level as apparmor to have these Breaks/Replaces:

  Breaks: fcitx-data
  Breaks: <media-hub>
  Breaks: <mediascanner2.0>
  Breaks: <messaging-app>
  Breaks: <webbrowser-app>
  Replaces: fcitx-data

It would be great if these could be removed from the package in an update for Ubuntu 18.04 (and preferably in newer versions of Ubuntu as well), so that low level packages in Ubuntu are not preventing downstreams from building upon the platform in such manner.
