Bug Description

I was trying to build update-manager in a yakkety sbuild chroot from a xenial system and encountered the following error:

Local sources

update-manager_16.10.5.dsc exists in .; copying to chroot

I worked around the issue by installing the yakkety version of sbuild on my xenial system, but the fix should be backported.

The workaround from this comment works:

Just uninstall gnupg and gnupg-l10n and install gnupg with "dpkg -i" from the latest xenial packages:

Quick Tip: Inside the container, for devel purposes only, you can remove gnupg2 (and -agent, etc) and stay with v1 only. Creating a link /usr/bin/gpg1 to /usr/bin/gpg. This will allow debuild scripts to finish building packages.
