Bug Description

Hello,

1) Ubuntu release: 20.04 LTS
2) GUFW version: 20.04.1-1ubuntu1
3) Firewall displays information and state correctly despite warnings from UFW.
4) Firewall displays no rules and incorrectly displays enable/disabled status.

Previous discussion here: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gui-ufw/+question/695073

A little time ago, I encountered the issue at https://github.com/costales/gufw/issues/9 that was subsequently fixed.

As this firewall ships with Ubuntu, and this is a fairly serious bug, would it potentially be possible to get this updated in the repos? An update to version 21.04 would fix the issue I believe, or the below patch would also fix the problem. I think this fix is definitely worth having in the repositories as misreporting the state of the firewall and the rules available (as it did for me) is quite serious.

A patch for the fix is available at https://github.com/costales/gufw/files/5430823/fix_9.zip. If any further information is needed, let me know and I'll be happy to provide it.

Hi,

I'm sorry, but I can't upload it to the repositories, that is done by
Canonical only (into backports repo). You should fill a bug to them (I
don't know where).

Best regards.

Costales.

Ah, I thought that was who I was reporting it to.

I'll see if I can figure it out.
