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.

Bug description:
  Users may not be able to successfully install packages using apturl, especially from other channels from the release archive (ie. using the partner archive).

  [Test case]
  1) apturl-gtk "apt:adobe-flashplugin?channel=xenial-partner"

  [Regression potential]
  Possible regressions include a failure to see a package as not being virtual due to not finding the package in the right specified location; also, it may be possible for the UI interface to be shown as completely insensitive (can't be clicked) in the event of a regression.
