Apport is commonly known as the system that intercepts crashes right when happen the first time. It gathers potentially useful information about the crash and the OS environment.
If apport is currently active you can disable it.
sudo vi /etc/default/apport
and change the enabled to 0:
# set this to 0 to disable apport, or to 1 to enable it # you can temporarily override this with # sudo service apport start force_start=1 enabled=0
If you really need to get rid of apport, you can remove it by executing this command:
sudo apt-get purge apport
