  Unable to report VirtualBox bug because of apport bug - could find no
  obvious other way to report any bugs

Status in apport package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I type
  Alt-F2 ubuntu-bugs VirtualBox
  apport says Application not installed !
  But when I just type
  ubuntu-bugs VirtualBox
  ubuntu starts VirtualBox (so it DOES know it's installed)

  Since upgarding from 12.04 to 14.04 to 16.04 LTS VirtualBox locks up
  on the machine completely, I can't kill any processes cleanly (even as
  root equivalent) so I have to log out (attempt repeatedly) or mostly I
  need to do a console shutdown - r 0

  I have reported this to Oracle VirtualBox, and have lots of info I can
  supply to help isolate the bug which I am well on way to isolating,
  but my question here is: Is there an alternate method (documented I
  may have missed) to report bug with VirtualBox (or any app) that
  crashes / fails to work with apport?

  Thanks for any help!
