Produced an error popup and apport crash for each package in a failed dependency chain

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

As noted in bug 165161, I had errors during my upgrade due to update-manager failing to upgrade. As expected, this produced an error message and apport crash report for update-manager. However, it also caused them for update-notifier and ubuntu-desktop, which depend on update-manager and therefore failed to upgrade.

The additional crash reports should be suppressed if possible. Ideally, a single error dialog would be displayed as well.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Can you try with latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.

I think this may have been fixed by:

update-manager (1:0.91.7) intrepid; urgency=low
[...]
  * DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeView{Gtk,KDE}.py:
    - do not show a error dialog for folloup errors from
      earlier errors (thanks to Alexander Sack for the report)
