Bug Description

[Impact]

Some fonts packages, which previously were named ttf-*, have been replaced with packages named fonts-*. Transitional dummy packages were available in Wily, but were dropped from archive in Xenial.

This upload updates the fonts package names in pkg_depends, so the complete language support is installed for the affected languages.

[Test Case]

Example: Nepali

$ cat /usr/share/language-selector/data/pkg_depends | grep ^fn:ne
fn:ne::ttf-devanagari-fonts
$ rmadison ttf-devanagari-fonts
 ttf-devanagari-fonts | 1:0.5.11ubuntu1 | precise | all
 ttf-devanagari-fonts | 1:0.5.14ubuntu1 | trusty | all
 ttf-devanagari-fonts | 1:0.5.14ubuntu1 | vivid | all
 ttf-devanagari-fonts | 1:0.5.14ubuntu1 | wily | all

So ttf-devanagari-fonts has been replaced with fonts-deva.

$ rmadison fonts-deva
 fonts-deva | 2:1.2 | vivid | source, all
 fonts-deva | 2:1.2 | wily | source, all
 fonts-deva | 2:1.2 | xenial | source, all
 fonts-deva | 2:1.2 | yakkety | source, all

[Regression Potential]

Neglectable.
