apport-cli crashed with AssertionError in add_hooks_info()

Bug #203764 reported by Vojtěch Látal
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
apport (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: apport

I tried to report a bug to Cheese through apport-cli with command
apport-cli -f -P 6697

Which outputed:

*** Collecting problem information

The collected information can be sent to the developers to improve the
application. This might take a few minutes.

and then traceback.

I think it is related only to apport. Not to Cheese.

Ah, this happens if you specify a PID that belongs to a program which is not packaged. Should get a proper error message.

This bug was fixed in the package apport - 0.106

apport (0.106) hardy; urgency=low

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * apport/crashdb_impl/ Fix spelling mistake in p-lp-bugs API
    (now corrected there).
  * Catch IndexError for invalid sys.argv[0], too.
    (LP: #204940)
  * apport/ Add test_run_report_bug_unpackaged_pid() test case which
    reports a bug against a pid which belongs to an unpackaged program. This
    reproduces LP #203764.
  * apport/ Drop add_hooks_info() assertion on nonexisting Package
    field, return silently instead. This conforms to the behaviour of the
    other add_*_info() functions and avoids nasty error handling.
  * apport/ Generate proper error message when calling with -f -p PID
    and PID belongs to an unpackaged program. (LP: #203764).

  [ Sebastien Bacher ]
  * po/Makevars: add the --language=python xgettext option so the translations
    template is correctly updated on build since cdbs is using intltool-update
    directly and not the corresponding makefile target
