Bug Description

The ExecStartPre, grepping if whoopsie is enabled returns 1
the service doesn't start (as expected) but systemd is reported a degraded state.

What to do:
- drop the value from the conffile in /etc/default/whoopsie
- in the preinst, systemctl disable whoopsie if the current version has report_crashes=false

This bug was fixed in the package whoopsie - 0.2.42

whoopsie (0.2.42) vivid; urgency=medium

  * Disable whoopsie in systemd if the sysadmin set it as disabled in
    /etc/default/whoopsie: (LP: #1390014)
    - remove report_crashes key from the conffile
    - if was set to false, generate an upstart override and disable it
      with systemctl
    - remove the condition in the upstart job, just use the override
  * Add Environment= to units instead of executing a shell script to set
    the daemon env.
  * Ship an init script file and handle upstart/init startup being disabled
    depending on /etc/default/whoopsie.
  * Use systemd debhelper sequence now.
