Hi crazy and thanks for your bug report. I am going to mark this as Confirmed since your report looks good, but would you mind adding the attachments individually? This will make it easier for the developers to see what logs are here, and to examine them easier, and move this bug along.

Okay crazy, thanks for your quick turnaround! I set the Importance as High as it seems to have a pretty severe impact on what I estimate is a small portion of users. Thanks to your logs it should be ready for the devs. Thanks for using Ubuntu and for contributing!

Changed in update-manager:
importance: Undecided → High
