This is due to the utterly slow and swap-to-death arm builders. Just retry the build, it'll work after a few attempts. I really don't want to disable this test, as it's working fine everywhere else and I want to know whether functionality works on arm platforms as well.

re-opening. closing as won't fix won't help anything for the release, until the package can be built.

now retried some times, and it always fails in the same place.

I can reproduce this when adding a "sleep 1" to /usr/bin/aptd's main, to simulate the arm builder slowness.

I uploaded 0.2.71 to quantal's unapproved which will fix this.

This bug was fixed in the package ubuntu-drivers-common - 1:0.2.71

ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.2.71) quantal; urgency=low

  * tests/ubuntu_drivers.py: When calling PackageKit, retry up to 5 seconds on
    o.f.d.Error.ServiceUnknown, so that this also works reliably on our slow
    ARM builders. (LP: #1061748)
