Yes, sorry, that seems to be a missing feature (or bug?) of apport. It
tells you a crash happened but not where to follow it up on the web.

Here's how to find out where your crash(es) went. In a terminal run the
below command. It will ask you for your password because for some
(security) reason the machine's unique ID is considered private. Enter
you password when asked and it should then open a web page with all the
crashes listed from your machine:

  xdg-open "https://errors.ubuntu.com/user/"`sudo cat /var/lib/whoopsie

or as two separate lines ending in a backtick:

  xdg-open "https://errors.ubuntu.com/user/"`
  sudo cat /var/lib/whoopsie/whoopsie-id`

The page will initially say "No data to display" but wait a second or
two and it will then be populated.

Clicking on a crash's link in the Received column will open details
about that particular instance. Then to follow it up scroll to the
bottom of the page and click on the "Problem" link. That will take you
to the bucket on errors.ubuntu.com where your crash has been grouped
with other people experiencing the same problem. You can also get to the
launchpad bug from there, if one exists, or tell it to open a new bug.
