apport (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

apport's ui.py file contains the following code:

 809 # executable?
 810 elif '/' in self.args[0]:
 811 pkg = apport.packaging.get_file_package(self.args[0])
 812 if not pkg:
 813 optparser.error('%s does not belong to a package.' % self.args[0])
 814 sys.exit(1)
 815 self.args = []
 816 self.options.filebug = True
 817 self.options.package = pkg

This will not provide any useful information about what to do if the 'executable' is provided by a snap. Information similar to https://code.launchpad.net/~juliank/ubuntu/bionic/apport/snap/+merge/342207 should be provided if the path is from a snap.
