Thanks for mentioning that you use Ubuntu.  I cannot help with eventual 
Ubuntu specifics and you might have better luck asking for advice in 
Ubuntu forums, but let's try...

Try avoid the GUI mode of reportbug.

If you happen to use reportbug-ng (if that even exists any longer) then 
please try use the good old reportbug.

If literally "nothing happened" then you need to consult your mail setup 
or contact your mail service administrator (a.k.a. postmaster): When you 
send an email to the Debian bugtracker - either from an email program or 
using reportbug (which also at the end sends an email unless told 
otherwise) then within 5-10 minutes you should receive a confirmation 
with a bug number.
