If you have installed with secureboot, the package you would have installed is shim-signed, not shim. So there's nothing unexpected here from the shim package's perspective.

However, the apport hook shown here shouldn't error out in this way, but instead fall through.

Apport already has a new version waiting to be accepted into -proposed; once that has cleared the SRU process I'll upload my fixes.
