I think there's something missing from your steps to reproduce.

I tried this:
1. With a clean chroot, 'sudo apt install emacs-nox elpa-debian-el'
   * Given that Emacs was not installed in the stable VM until
     post-upgrade, I don't think my digression is a relevant variable.
2. Start Emacs
3. M-x debian-bug
4. Everything appears to work fine.  After composing the full text of
   the bug, I hit C-c C-c, and then see the *Emacs Mail Setup Help*
   window appear, along with a minibuffer prompt.  From the original bug
   report email it sounds like this is farther along then you were able
   to get?

a. My hostname is a real FQDN (however no longer functional due to
expired dyndns subscription--post-Oracle acquisition is a rip-off).
It's possible that this bug only exists on hosts that don't have a FQDN
b. Reportbug has not been configured.
