Bug Description

NGINX has released 1.15.5 which contains bugfixes for a segmentation fault:

Changes with nginx 1.15.5 02 Oct 2018

    *) Bugfix: a segmentation fault might occur in a worker process when
       using OpenSSL 1.1.0h or newer; the bug had appeared in 1.15.4.

    *) Bugfix: of minor potential bugs.

This should be included in Ubuntu as the flaw was introduced in 1.15.4, which is already in the repositories.

As this is upstream-originating fixes, regression risk is low.

As there are no feature changes, this is a bugfix-only upload and should be OK under the current freeze of the archives.

This was purely just two bugfixes, no freeze exception needed. We care about features, not version numbers. :)

      and no third-party modules.
    - debian/tests/control: add nginx-core test.
    - debian/apport/ Add apport hooks for additional bug

    - debian/nginx-common.install: Add install rule for apport hooks.
    - d/nginx-{core,light,full,extras}.postinst: Add checks for whether
      port 80 is in use or not to determine whether or not to attempt
      starting of the NGINX service during install/upgrade
    - d/control: Add dependencies to nginx-{core,light,full,extras} on
      `iproute2` as the postinst scripts now use `ss` to determine if
      Port 80 is open or not.
