Bug Description

There is still the goal to remove Python2 from the desktop images, and to use Python3 only. update-notifier should use Python3. It looks like the package is already partially ported.

This conversion was done once, and reverted in version 0.119ubuntu15 because there was no python3-debian available yet. That change can probably be resuscitated from the bzr history without too much trouble.

This bug was fixed in the package update-notifier - 3.161

update-notifier (3.161) wily; urgency=medium

  * Migrate fully from python2 to python3 now that python3-debian is
    available in the archive. In the process, we drop most of the
    python-related dependencies from the update-notifier package, since it
    contains no python code; these are included only to support
    backend_helper.py, which is shipped in update-notifier-common, not in
    update-notifier for reasons that are not clear. For now keep the
    package split unchanged pending further investigation. LP: #1440683.
