Bug description:

  * libQapt needs apt-xapian-index in order to search for packages,
otherwise it never returns a result.
  * As a consequence Driver Manager doesn't find packages and is empty.
  * Before, apt-xapian-index was installed as a dependence of Muon
(libmuon), which is not included in the default install anymore.

  [Test Case]

  * Update libqapt and run `kcmshell5 kcm_driver_manager`.
  * After some time (~1 minute) Driver Manager shows suggested packages.

  [Regression Potential]

  * Low, Driver Manager is useless as of now.
  * The same fix was applied in Yakkety.
