"ubuntu-bug" does not work on Aquaris 4.5 for packages from ci-train PPA

Bug #1467830 reported by Robie Basak on 2015-06-23

apport (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Any attempt to run "ubuntu-bug" seems to fail on my phone (Aquaris 4.5 running r23). This includes running it against "webbrowser-app", "/usr/bin/webbrowser-app" and "apport". Whichever way it refuses telling me that "This is not an official Ubuntu package. Please remove any third party package and try again.".

Expected behaviour: "ubuntu-bug" should work against any executable on my phone - certainly for apport itself, preferably for webbrowser-app that seems to be a pre-installed Debian package, and preferably for executables from Clicks too where they have a bug tracker in Launchpad.

Actual behaviour: it works for none of the above. I get: http://paste.ubuntu.com/11761165/

apport is 2.17.2-0ubuntu1.1 and lsb_release reports that I am running Vivid.

I'm not sure if this is a bug in apport, system-image or something else.

This reproduces for me every time, but:

09:53 <popey> i dont get that
09:54 <popey> http://paste.ubuntu.com/11761169/
09:55 <popey> ubuntu-touch/rc-proposed/bq-aquaris.en image 47 on krillin

I am using r23 on an Aquaris 4.5.

The only thing I've really done apart from installing apps is to enable ssh using http://askubuntu.com/a/601972/7808

This is likely because the packages come from the ci-train overlay-ppa. You could confirm this by using 'apt-cache policy' and the name of the affected package.

It's possible to white list that specific PPA so that one could report bugs about packages from it to Launchpad, however please don't do that because of bug 1470572. Once that bug is fixed (and SRUed) and my PPA retracing branch are merged, then we can sort this bug out.

This seems to be the case for webbrowser-app but not for apport, and ubuntu-bug still doesn't let me file a bug against apport, in case this helps you understand this issue better. Is this because 2.17.2-0ubuntu1.1 is somehow not in an apt repository from the perspective of "apt-cache policy"? Though "apt-cache show apport" can see it, so I'm not sure what's going on here.

Ah, "apt-cache show" can probably see it because it's installed locally maybe? I don't see the updates pocket in /var/lib/apt/lists/:

phablet@ubuntu-phablet:/var/lib/apt/lists$ ls

However sources.list does have "deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ vivid-updates universe" but maybe it wasn't present during image generation.

(oh, and sources.list does also have "deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ vivid-updates main restricted")

@Robie - I reported the apt lists part of this bug in bug 1471903. Thanks!

I've uploaded the fix for bug 1470572 to the vivid proposed queue now.

I tested this again today on the following:

phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ cat /etc/system-image/channel.ini
base: system-image.ubuntu.com
http_port: 80
https_port: 443
channel: ubuntu-touch/rc-proposed/ubuntu
device: mako
build_number: 268
version_detail: ubuntu=20151020,device=20150911,custom=20151020,version=268

It seems that the fix for LP: #1489410 makes whitelisting the PPA as I suggested in comment #2 unnecessary.
