Binary package hint: update-manager

Thanks,

Apt log comments on broken packages. Apt-Term.log is there but it's protected. Do you need that one as well?

Hi,

I ended up making a clean install instead of an dist-upgrade since I
have been dist-upgrading since Hoary. So I no longer have access to
those files. Sorry.

Thanks for a great OS!
