The problem is that pycentral does call dpkg-querry with a absolute path and the installed version of dpkg does not support the dpkg triggers status flags. This makes the pycentral scripts fail:

            cmd = ['/usr/bin/dpkg-query', '-L',]

Changed in update-manager:
importance: Undecided → High
status: New → Confirmed

The correct dpkg that supports triggers is in $PATH, I think the correct solution here is to pre-depend in pycentral on a dpkg version that supports triggers.

    - add pre-depends on dpkg with trigger support (LP: #148930)
