apport (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Running apt-cache policy apport on an Ubuntu 14.04.2 Live CD returns the following:

  Installed: 2.14.1-0ubuntu3.7
  Candidate: 2.14.1-0ubuntu3.7
  Version table:
 *** 2.14.1-0ubuntu3.7 0
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     2.14.1-0ubuntu3 0
        500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/main amd64 Packages

Because there is no record of where the package came from, the package is considered unofficial and its not possible to use "ubuntu-bug apport" to report a bug about apport or any other package.

Using "ubuntu-bug $packagename" from a 14.04, 14.10, and Vivid Live CD all work.
