  aptdaemon not installed by Depends: update-manager fails

Status in “update-manager” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  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.
