This looks to be a local system issue with python3-minimal being removed and then the prerm scripts from various programs failing due to debhelper scripts that the package use can't find the required binaries.

I'm not sure how you got into this state (I see a 3.6.8-1~16.04.york1 python3.6-minimal package being removed-- it is possible the ppa in question has packages that don't have their dependencies setup). I suggest installing 'python3-minimal' then running 'sudo apt-get -f install' and then remove any packages you aren't interested in.

Changed in ufw (Ubuntu):
