Bug Description

synaptic shows "reading changelogs" dialogbox but doesn't actually show the changes when applying the upgrades

apt-listchanges is installed and would show the changes when run via apt-get upgrade or dselect.

Hello Michael,
Thank you for submitting this bug and reporting a problem with synaptic. You made this bug report some time ago and Ubuntu has been updated since then.

Could you confirm that this is no longer a problem and that we can close the ticket?
If it is still a problem, are you still interested in finding a solution to this bug?
If you are, could you let us know, and in the current version, run the following (only once):
apport-collect 1433449
and upload the updated logs and and any other logs that are relevant for this particular issue.

Thank you again for helping make Ubuntu better.

 I just ran synaptic again to check. I could very briefly see a window
in the background  opening and immediately closing again that looked
like apt-listchanges
after I clicked on the apply-changes button.

This is definitely not the desired behaviour since one does NOT have a
chance to read the output.
