  = How to Triage =
  Help with triaging bugs for update-manager is very welcome. It accumulated a lot of reports over time. Some are bugs in update-manager, but some are bugs in packages where update-manager is just the messenger. To find out what exactly is the problem, we always need the log files in {{{/var/log/dist-upgrade/*}}}. Most of the time they provide enough information to know what went wrong. If they are missing, it is recommended to ask for them with a phrase like:
- {{{
  Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Could you please add the log files from '/var/log/dist-upgrade/' to this bug report as separate attachments? Thanks in advance.
- }}}
  If the problem is with update-manager itself, then there is only the file /var/log/apt/term.log attached to the report and the report is tagged `apport-package`.
