The script should check if the file exists before trying to dump it.

This bug was fixed in the package apport - 1.20.1-0ubuntu2

  [ Brad Figg ]
  * The kernel team has decided that asking the user for a bunch of
    information which they may not be able to answer is the wrong thing to do.
    Therefore, all the propmpting of the user for said information has been
    removed. Also removed is the tagging of "needs-upstream-testing".

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * Merge bug fixes from trunk:
    - apport-gtk: HTML-escape text for dialogs with URLs. (LP: #750870)
    - dump_acpi_tables.py: Check to see if acpi/tables dir is mounted first.
      Thanks Brian Murray. (LP: #729622)
    - man/apport-cli.1: Document recently added -w/--window option. Thanks
