I had a separate chat with Rob (Rob is testing budgie-remix 16.10
and also the other official community distros) about this matter -
according to rob "software updater (...really update-manager) has been
broken for some time, both on ubuntu and ubuntu gnome 16.10."
So I would infer xubuntu 16.10 is 'affected'. Suggest the real fix
should be for update-manager to have a dependency on gir1.2-unity-5.0
- at the moment it is a "suggests"
Traceback (most recent call last):
