Thanks for your report.

The upgrade is blocked because you're using packages from the xorg-edgers PPA. Please revert to the version of the official ubuntu repository and try again. You can use ppa-purge to help you with this.

I'm closing this report because it is not a bug in Ubuntu.

Changed in update-manager (Ubuntu):
