These packages invoke update-notifier for the downloading; reassigning.

I don't see what value this sandbox user is providing, however, and why
apt needs to be so noisy about it.  Is this about not running the
network client code as root?  Clearly, anything downloaded is going to
be handled as root once it's there.
