I just figured-out how to get "apport-autoreport.service", "whoopsie.service" & "systemd-networkd-wait-online.service" starting correctly on a networkd(netplan)-only(NetworkManager.service _disabled_ system) desktop which uses WiFi and a static-ip on Ubuntu 18.10 Desktop.
I'm commenting here in case it provides insight or another angle to approach the resolution of this bug. BTW: the test system _was_ experiencing this bug on a clean-install of 18.10 Desktop ISO. TL;DR Adding a new variable(optional: yes) in the netplan yaml config for a static IP addy allows the "systemd-networkd-wait-online.service" to _ignore_ interfaces that may be blocking or inhibiting the proper startup of the apport-auto/whoopsie units. Steps to reproduce: 1. Disable all NetworkManager related services: $ systemctl list-unit-files | grep Net NetworkManager-dispatcher.service disabled NetworkManager-wait-online.service disabled NetworkManager.service disabled 2. Create new yaml config for static IP's on all IF's(notice the 'optional: yes' directives!): $ cat /etc/netplan/01-static-ip.yaml network: version: 2 renderer: networkd ethernets: enp2s0: optional: yes dhcp4: no dhcp6: no addresses: [192.168.1.201/24] gateway4: 192.168.1.254 nameservers: addresses: [18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124] wifis: wlp3s0: optional: yes dhcp4: no dhcp6: no addresses: [192.168.1.202/24] gateway4: 192.168.1.254 nameservers: addresses: [126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52] access-points: "Chez Merkle-Mac-Rainey 5 GHz": password: "BIG SECRET" 3. Reboot and confirm proper startup of all service units: $ systemctl --failed 0 loaded units listed. Pass --all to see loaded but inactive units, too. To show all installed unit files use 'systemctl list-unit-files'. $ systemctl status ● CKR-1 State: running Jobs: 0 queued Failed: 0 units Since: Thu 2018-12-06 15:02:16 CST; 22min ago HTH! -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1787729 Title: [FAILED] Failed to start Process error reports when automatic reporting is enabled.
