  apport (2.20.9-0ubuntu7.19) bionic; urgency=medium

  * data/apport: In the event that the crashing executable does not exist on
    disk any more the path name of the executable (passed by core) is appended
    with '(deleted)' because apport is currently using sys.argv for argument
    parsing there end up being too many arguments and apport crashes. This is
    fixed by adding handling for six arguments. (LP: #1899195)

  apport (2.20.9-0ubuntu7.17) bionic; urgency=medium

  [ Brian Murray ]
  * apport/hookutils.py: workaround the fact that pkexec does not work in
    non-graphical environments yet (LP #1821415) by skipping the gathering of
    information as root because it isn't strictly necessary for a bug report.
    (LP: #1861451)

  [ Matthieu Clemenceau ]
  * Add in a source package hook symlink for linux-firmware. (LP: #1872059)
