Hi Alessandro and All in the list,

thank you All for your good info and links, now I resolved the issue, 
simply reading the bug opened in Launchpad and changing the "type" of 
the release in Muon (from LTS to Normal). Surely something has been 
corrected in the meanwhile...

What I would like to know is is now I can "change" again my 
software-properties settings for the repositories from "Normal" to "LTS".

Thanks again.
