update-manager remains possibly fixable if the validity of the data
retrieved can be checked; so while this is marked "won't fix" for
NetworkManager (due to the above), I'm leaving the update-manager tasks
confirmed.

Bug description:
  When in a hotel there is a often a T&Cs page that is delivered when
  connecting to the network.  Some combination of network manager and
  update manager (or something else entirely) doesn't seem to be able to
  handle this, and update are left in a non-working state after not
  being able to read package headers file.
