This bug was fixed in the package apturl - 0.5.2ubuntu11.1
apturl (0.5.2ubuntu11.1) xenial; urgency=medium
* Fix common crashes (AttributeError in doEnableChannel), due to changes
in apt_pkg API, etc. (LP: #1566201)
[ Brian Murray ]
* Port to proper apt_pkg APIs.
[ Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre ]
* Override the start_available and start_error functions from Aptdaemon
backend correctly to match the passed parameters.
* Use pkexec rather than gksu to do our external calls to apt-key, install,
and software-properties, etc; since they need admin privileges.
