That file is simply the python file to access the actual database file(s) which are in /var/lib/command-not-found.

Does c-n-f crash every time? Does running an apt update fix the issue?

steev@kld:~/git/linux$ gitleakss
Command 'gitleakss' not found, did you mean:
  command 'gitleaks' from deb gitleaks
Try: sudo apt install <deb name>
