Bug Description

The update fonts-roboto (1:4.3-3ubuntu1.2) dropped the Medium and Black fonts in fonts-roboto (1:4.3-3ubuntu1)

It's true, it was in connection with the fix of bug #1441210, and in line with what upstream (Debian) did.

However, as from Ubuntu 16.04 fonts-roboto lives in its own source package:
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fonts-roboto

Medium and Black are back there, as can be seen here:
https://packages.debian.org/sid/all/fonts-roboto-hinted/filelist

If you are not on 16.04 yet, you may want to download the fonts-roboto and fonts-roboto-hinted packages and install them manually.

So, this is "fixed" in 16.04. We won't backport the resurrection of those weights.

Changed in fonts-android (Ubuntu):
status: New → Fix Released
