Hi there,

     watchdog package seems to be broken at least since Ubuntu 15.04 and 
is definitely broken in Ubuntu 16.04 (see for example bug #1448924 or 
bug #1535854) - watchdog service can no longer be started automatically 
at boot time because the watchdog module (i use iTCO_wdt) cannot be 
loaded. None of these bugs seem to have been assigend to anyone of the 
ubuntu team. I think the watchdog package is vital for many ubuntu 
servers without constant supervision.

So, are there plans to fix these bugs in the new ubuntu LTS version 16.04?
