KeyError when using requestbackport to submit a new backport bug request

Asked by nhasian

In Ubuntu 18.04 when running the command "requestbackport nnn" I receive this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/requestbackport", line 308, in <module>
  File "/usr/bin/requestbackport", line 301, in main
    check_existing(package, destinations)
  File "/usr/bin/requestbackport", line 93, in check_existing
    project = Launchpad.projects[release + '-backports']
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/lazr/restfulclient/", line 1001, in __getitem__
    raise KeyError(key)
KeyError: 'disco-backports'

Apparently the project 'disco-backports' has not (yet) been created.
I suggest that you create a bug report in 'Ubuntu-Backports'

Can you help with this problem?
