Package: reportbug
Version: 7.1.6+devuan2.1
Severity: normal


When I tried to report a bug in another package
in Devuan GNU/Linux ascii, I found out that the reportbug program
cannot connect to the Devuan bug tracking system.
Reportbug displays the following message after trying to
query the Devuan bug tracking system:

> Unable to connect to Devuan BTS (error: "NoNetwork()"); continue [y|N|?]

The network interface is up and running fine (managed by wicd).

Furthermore, the bug report mail itself could not be sent by reportbug,
probably because the mail is sent to a server for Debian bugs,
as the output of reportbug suggests:

> Connecting to via SMTP...
> SMTP send failure: {'': (550, b'relay not
> permitted')}.

My system originally was a Debian GNU/Linux jessie, then upgraded
to Devuan GNU/Linux jessie and now Devuan GNU/Linux ascii.
