Wrong permission of /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20archive after upgrade 7.10 -> 8.04

Bug #219859 reported by M. Lichter on 2008-04-20
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

After upgrading from Ubuntu 7.10 -> 8.04 via "update-manager -d" the update-manager applet refused to check for new updates.
Hovering the mouse over the applet showed a tooltip which contained an error message saying that it couldn't access the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20archive.

The respective file had permission 660 instead of 644 like the others in that directory.
After changing its permissions to 644 everything works fine.
