aptdaemon not installed by Depends: update-manager fails
Status in “update-manager” package in Ubuntu:
In systems with install-recommends disabled, aptdaemon is not
installed when one installs update-manager. When one runs update-
manager, it crashes.
See attached stack trace (also shows apt-cache policy on update-
notifier, update-manager and aptdaemon).
The issue is that the Depends path from update-manager includes a
Recommends link. See attached aptdaemon-pruned.dot.png. In this, red
arrows are Recommends, black arrows are Depends.
A solution may be to add aptdaemon as a direct Depends of update-
manager, or perhaps to change python-aptdaemon's Recommend of
aptdaemon to a Depend.
