This bug was fixed in the package ubuntu-release-upgrader - 1:16.04.8

ubuntu-release-upgrader (1:16.04.8) xenial; urgency=medium

  * data/release-upgrades:
    - set the default upgrade prompt to "lts" instead of "normal" so that
      LTS users will only see the automatic upgrade prompt when the next LTS
      version is ready. (LP: #1550927)
  * update demoted.cfg, demoted.cfg.trusty, mirrors.cfg
  * DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeAptCdrom.py: fix double open. (LP: #1551929)
