severity 84405 normal
The issue is a little more complex. Reportbug behaves differently
depending on which packages are missing.
If python3-gi is missing, it falls back to text mode as documented.
If, however, python3-gi is install, but gir1.2-vte-2.91 is missing, it
fails to fall back and emits the reported traceback.
It would be nice if reportbug handled this the same way as if
python3-gi was missing.
