Should I remove apport?( System program problem detected)

I know that Ubuntu has a history with “System program problem detected”. I don’t know exacly why this happens, but you can “fix” it by using

sudo apt-get remove apport apport-symptoms

Then the ubuntu will not report more, with can be useful if this problem is consatant for you

[EDIT]

Don’t delete apport. Just do what fossfreedom said.

If you do notice that the same issue is occurring, there is a checkbox (lower left) of the dialog when reporting that says that the same problem will be ignored. That’s probably better than removing apport itself.

Without apport reports on launchpad - no developer or tester will be aware of any issue you are having.

if “System program problem detected” warnings appear every day (and it’s annoying, I know) and if you’re sure that there isn’t any recent system problem, just take a look into /var/crash and delete old files, if any.

As fossfreedom says, it’s anyway better than removing apport.
