Add ubuntu-advantage-tools to Recommends on ubuntu-minimal

Hi everyone,

Recently, we have received a request about moving ubuntu-advantage-tools
from *Depends* to *Recommends* on *ubuntu-minimal* and *update-manager* as
can be seen here:

The problem today of ubuntu-advantage-tools sitting on *Depends* is that
removing this package will also trigger the removal of several core Ubuntu
packages on the system as well.

We want to ask for opinions of this change to other Ubuntu developers, to
see if we are not missing any other aspect around the original decision to
include the package into *Depends*.

Best regards,
Lucas Moura
