Bug Description

Every day at around 0630 GMT I get output from the daily cron job:

```
Cron <root@racebest-live> test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily )
```

Reporting:

```
/etc/cron.daily/apt:
DB Update failed, database locked
```

I have unattended-upgrades installed and set up if that is of any relevance.
