I expected to be able to report a bug I've found in qmail-run, but this seems to be a barrier to entry

Instead I got to report ubiquity preventing me from reporting a bug

This bug was fixed in the package apport - 2.20.11-0ubuntu68

apport (2.20.11-0ubuntu68) impish; urgency=medium

  * data/package-hooks/source_ubiquity.py: confirm that the key exists in the
    report before trying to manipulate it. (LP: #1929292)
  * backends/packaging-apt-dpkg.py: check to see if there is a different
    package which provides the dependency.
  * test/test_report.py: with glibc 2.34 abort tests started failing as the
    backtrace didn't have a program counter value in frame 1 so check frame 1
    or frame 2.
