After a lengthy discussion in #ubuntu-bugs this evening, I tracked this
down to ubufox. It was only triggered it one case - installing totem-
mozilla with ubufox (the Ubuntu Firefox plugin finder). As Xubuntu is
the only derivative that doesn't have either both or neither of ubufox
and totem-mozilla, it should only have been commonly triggered on
I have notified asac and submitted a patch. This can no longer affect
new systems. Thanks must go to kahrytan for bringing the issue up!
As for existing affected systems, we unfortunately cannot do much.
Resolution is as simple as removing 'web' from /etc/apt/sources.list,
but it is impossible to do that automatically, both for policy and
technical reasons. We could fix it with an update, except that the
entire problem is that it breaks updates.
