Should I use ubuntu-bug AND apport-collect?

Asked by Tyler Johnson on 2019-10-14

I recently filed a bug report, and attached the output from the ubuntu-bug command. A bot told me to run "apport-collect 12345" (or whatever the bug number was). Is there a significant difference between apport-collect and ubuntu-bug? Will the latter give additional info that the former lacks? Or should I just ignore this, and assume the bug report has enough information? (A human can always ask for more. Also, bots are not smart, so... perhaps I shouldn't read too much into what one bot says?)

I've always use ubuntu-bug personally. If you search the bugs for your report do you see it?

If you leave the bug report as it is, then it will expire without further actions taken (see the note in the heading "This bug report will be marked for expiration in 59 days if no further activity occurs. (find out why)"

If that is what you want, you can ignore the request to provide information.

If you want further activities on your bug report, you have to follow the request to run "apport-collect 1847917"

Can you help with this problem?
