update-manager does not actually restart when asked

Bug #1550826 reported by Humphrey van Polanen Petel on 2016-02-28

update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When update-manager concludes that the system needs to be restarted in order to complete some update, it displays a panel with the options <restart now> and <restart later>. Selecting the option <restart now> does not restart the system, but instead displays the common shut-down panel with the two big boxes <restart> and <shut down>. This is wrong. When the option <restart now> is selected, update-manager should initiate system restart directly.
