Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

When running update-manager, and there are updates for packages that come from repositories that do not support changelogs, there is a message in the "Description of Update", part of the GUI (in the Changes-tab) and it has a message that looks like this:

"This change is not coming from a source that supports changelogs.This change is not coming from a source that supports changelogs."

and exactly like that (without the quotes). The message is, as can be seen here, printed twice.
