This bug was fixed in the package apt - 1.6.6

---------------
apt (1.6.6) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Set DPKG_FRONTEND_LOCKED when running {pre,post}-invoke scripts.
    Some post-invoke scripts install packages, which fails because
    the environment variable is not set. This sets the variable for
    all three kinds of scripts {pre,post-}invoke and pre-install-pkgs,
    but we will only allow post-invoke at a later time.
