apt.conf.d does not parse valid files

Bug #1572554 reported by Michael Wodniok
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
augeas (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Ubuntu version: 14.04.4 (trusty)
augeas-lenses version: 1.2.0-0ubuntu1.1

The file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove causes a parsing error in augtool:

augtool> ls /augeas/files/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove
path = /files/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove
mtime = 1397135092
lens/ = @AptConf
error/ = parse_failed

The bug causing this behaviour was already fixed in upstream at 2015-07-13:


Please backport this fix to the current supported lts distributions. It seems like xenial will get this fix.

This patch is tested with version augeas-lenses 1.4.0-0ubuntu1. Since there are no other in-code dependencies this patch should also work for 1.2.0-0ubuntu1.1 (=trusty version).
