Bug Description

Per: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/1204_HWE_EOL#A1._Install_12.04.5_HWE_.28Trusty_kernel.2BAC8-graphics.29, starting with Ubuntu 12.04.4 (as reported by `lsb_release -d`) I run `hwe-support-status` and it tells me to:

sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-trusty linux-image-generic-lts-trusty

I do this, then reboot, yet it still says:

(matt@case) ~$ lsb_release -d
Description: Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS

Not the 12.04.5 which I expect.

Further, per the chart in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/1204_HWE_EOL#FAQ, I should be running the trusty graphics stack as well, yet none of that was listed in the apt-get install line. Verifying this:

(matt@case) ~$ dpkg -l | grep trusty
ii linux-generic-lts-trusty Generic Linux kernel image and headers
ii linux-headers-generic-lts-trusty Generic Linux kernel headers
ii linux-image-generic-lts-trusty Generic Linux kernel image

None of the trusty xorg packages are installed.

I believe that the commands generated by hwe-support-status are incomplete to accomplish its stated goal.

This change, which can be found in the linked bzr branch, made it into Precise although the changelog entry referencing this bug managed to disappear. Subsequently, I'm setting the status of the task to Fix Released.
