So your problem is that utils.get_source_package(package) doesn't
return any list of (package, description); this could be either

apt-cache showsrc libqglviewer

doesn't return anything on the node where you're running reportbug, or
because its binary package doesn't have a corresponding description
available, as in apt-cache show 'pkg' | grep "^Description:" is it
possible that you have "Description-en" in apt-cache show output ?
