Bug Description

In Software & Updates, by default the current setting is to only inform Yakkety users of LTS updates. This makes no sense since Yakkety will probably be EOL by July 2017 which is before the probable release of the next LTS in April 2018. I recognize that this is early stages for Yakkety but this default should be changed at some point before release.

Naturally, I imagine that this bug would be fixed on a CD image and the one I used is now 5 days old so if someone could confirm this if they find the bug on the latest CD image then I would be very grateful.
