According to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProgramCrash an application crash should be examined further using the "Examine locally" button from Apport:

That button is no longer in the 16.04LTS version of that dialog:

At the help page for the Wiki, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HelpContents the instructions for reporting wiki errors read "If you find any errors on the help pages, please describe them on HelpErrata." "HelpErrata" is a link to http://moinmoin.wikiwikiweb.de/HelpErrata which leads to a 404 error. That's the wrong place to link anyway; that's for MoinMoin Wiki system bugs, not errors on the help pages.


I'd seen the same in a fresh Ubuntu 17.04 install; after installing apport-retrace the missing button was seen.

Running the command

apt policy apport-retrace

will tell you whether the package is installed.

To install, run

sudo apt-get install apport-retrace
