Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately, we cannot currently work on this bug currently because your description didn't include enough information. You may find it helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively" http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html. We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem.
We have instructions on debugging some types of problems at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProcedures. At a minimum, we need: 1. The specific steps or actions you took that caused you to encounter the problem. 2. The behavior you expected. 3. The behavior you actually encountered (in as much detail as possible). Please also provide the output for the following commands "apt-cache policy python python3 libpython2.7-minimal; python --version; python3 --version" You are running a EOL & unsupported kernel (17.10/4.13) and I see many packages not intended for Xenial (16.04). I suspect it's not a bug, but a 'frakensystem' that has packages intended for other releases (17.10 & 18.04) added which I believe have created your issue. More description of what you were trying to do, behavior expected may have helped.
