looks like you dont have lsb-release installed ...

sudo apt install ubuntu-minimal

which you should always have installed on every (X,K,L,*)ubuntu will
pull it in.

seems also like there is a bug in the firefox postinst script that does
not catch the missing lsb_release command or a missing dependency of
firefox on the lsb-release package ... you should file that one on
launchpad ...
