We started discussing an issue with Cobertura on #31194 which wasn't really related to that ticket. Moving that issue here:

You're right, it is /usr/share/java/cobertura-2.1.1.jar but for some reason I didn't have that file in my system. An apt remove and apt install later and it was back, and now ant coverage does something that looks more like expected.

Hmm, random thought: can you try installing a newer Java version (as in: JRE, java command, not necessarily JDK/javac)? In theory, it shouldn't hurt to use a newer Java version, because we're still building for 1.8 compatibility in src/build/java/base.xml. Maybe you could do the upgrade in a way that allows a downgrade again, just in case this wasn't it.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

We dropped Cobertura from the build process a couple weeks ago. That means this issue is not relevant to us anymore. Closing.
