bluetooth service unable to restart when dist-upgrading from Q -> R on the Nexus 7

Bug Description


When dist-upgrading from Quantal -> Raring on the nexus 7 the bluez package installation appears to hang. Looking in the background the blue tooth service fails to restart which causes bluez to halt installation.

To fix this simply open a 2nd terminal and type ' sudo service bluetooth restart'

this should restart the service and nudge the installer, allowing it to continue with the upgrade.

Expected Result: Bluetooth service should automatically restart when upgrading related packages
Actual Result: Bluetooth service needs to be restarted automatically.

Steps to Reproduce:

1.) Install the Quantal - UDS Image on the nexus 7
2.) apt-get update & verify no updates needed
3.) Update /etc/apt/sources.list to include the raring ppa
4.) apt-get update & apt-get dist-upgrade
5.) note the bluez package will appear hang when updating from 4.101-0ubuntu6 -> 4.101-0ubuntu7

this happened due to the fact that quantal was a demo with multiple hacks inside, upgrades based on the quantal image are neither encouraged nor supported. fixing this bug would mean add fixes to the demo image which we will not do ... closing all tasks here
