I could reproduce this bug under this environment:
1. clean install debian stable in a vm
2. upgrade debian to sid
3. install emacs and debian-el: $ sudo apt -y install emacs
Now, M-x debian-bug command does not work correctly.
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
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.
what makes me wonder is that the same procedure works on Debian 10 but
not on Debian Sid. To clarify the encountered bug, I once recorded my
screen on a clean installed Debain 10 (which works fine).
and also on a clean installed Debian Sid (which doesn't work).
