Comment 6 for bug 1579712

I would really like to see this go through as an SRU to Xenial. I am hitting a problem with my third-party repo 100% of the time. When I have the repo enabled, apt-get update hangs indefinitely when it runs appstreamcli at the end, and I assume all of the users of my repo are experiencing the same problem. With a package built using the debdiff given here, apt-get and appstreamcli run just fine.

If the size of the changes here are a problem, the one-liner mentioned above would be sufficient for me.
