apport (2.20.9-0ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=medium
* New upstream release:
- apport/ when installing extra packages do not install
the debug versions of them as this was installing gdb-dbg. If debug
versions of a package are specifically required they can be passed as
an extra-package.
- backends/ when reusing a sandbox do not remove
conflicting packages when they conflict with themselves, or when they
conflict with but also provide a virtual package.
- bin/apport-retrace: add a --no-stracktrace-source option that does not
do the work of creating a StacktraceSource field in the retraced report
thereby decreasing the time to retrace.
- data/apport: wait for lock, with 30s timeout (LP: #1746874)

case so check for both.
