Bug Description

software-properties-gtk crashes when launching. In a terminal window I get the following output:

gpg: /tmp/tmpm_muan/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/UbuntuDrivers/", line 162, in packages_for_modalias
    cache_map = packages_for_modalias.cache_maps[apt_cache_hash]
KeyError: -1063142254

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:
