Description of the problem:
Certain packages never show changelog items in update-manager.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start update manager with an old version of lifrerea installed.
2. Click on lifrea update in the top list.
3. Make sure Details are shown and click on the Changes tab.

Expected result:
Changes tab to display a changelog of changes between lifrea 1.0.7-1ubuntu1 and liferea 1.0.9-0ubuntu1.

Actual result:
Changes area says "The list of changes is not available yet. Please try again later." for weeks on end.

Additional information:
The same thing happens for the following packages:
fastjar
libnspr4
libnss3
liferea-gtkhtml
liferea-mozilla
linux-restricted-modules
linux-restricted-modules-common
nvidia-glx-legacy
qemu
xserver-xgl

fastjar is a real oddball and simply displays nothing (no message at all) and libsigc++2.0 seems to hang forever saying "Downloading the list of changes..."
