Public bug reported: On Ubuntu 19.04 I repeatedly encounter command-not-found crashing because it is unable to open its database.
Inspection reveals that files in /var/lib/command-not-found are owned by root and have permissions set so that they are readable only by the owner. Deleting these files or changing their permission to be universally readable fixes the issue.
