Bug Description

update-notifier 3.168.7 has been published to xenial-security to fix bug 1702724 and be installed through unattended-upgrades (given that users are not receiving updates notifications)

This version depends on update-manager 16.04.6 available on Ubuntu Desktop 16.04.3 and higher. update-notifier fails to install via unattended-upgrades on systems installed from a previous version of 16.04.

The output of unattended-upgrades on these systems is:
  update-notifier:amd64 Depends on update-manager [ amd64 ] < 1:16.04.3 | 1:16.04.10 > ( gnome ) (>= 1:16.04.6) can't be satisfied!
  update-notifier-common:amd64 Depends on update-manager-core [ amd64 ] < 1:16.04.3 | 1:16.04.10 > ( admin ) (>= 1:16.04.6) can't be satisfied!

Could you please publish update-manager 1:16.04.10 (or higher) to xenial-security

(note that 1:16.04.11 is in -proposed and is apparently a security update so this bug will fix itself once this version is published)

As soon as the update-manager currently in -proposed gets release, I'll rebuild it in -security.
