  "AppStream cache update completed, but some metadata was ignored due
  to errors." on "sudo apt-get update"

Status in AppStream:
  Invalid
Status in Ubuntu GNOME:
  Confirmed
Status in appstream package in Ubuntu:
  Invalid
Status in fwupd package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in fwupd source package in Xenial:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  [Impact]

   * Checks for apt updates using apt or apt-get also update the
  appstream cache.  Some of the appstream metadata installed locally
  isn't strictly valid as it's missing two fields.

  [Test Case]

   * fwupdmgr refresh
   * apt update
   * check for errors about metadata being ignored

  [Regression Potential]

   * This is just changing the XML metadata locally, I don't see any
  regression potential.

  [Other Info]
   
   * This fix has been applied upstream: https://github.com/hughsie/fwupd/commit/f4e0e88f7cba833a4badc1a3d62f1a08dd1bfd96

  [Original report]

  I have found that when there are new packages available which my
  machine doesn't know about yet, if I run "sudo apt-get update" this is
  the output:

  I have found this to be present on all Ubuntu 16.04 flavours which I
  have tried, I have also been informed that this is likely to be a
  server-side issue. You can also see from this
  https://askubuntu.com/q/761884/364819 that many are experiencing it.
