The problem here (and it's still the case, I think, at least in bionic) is that update-manager uses the binary version to generate changelog URIs, and in some cases that isn't the same as the source version. It needs to use the source version instead.

  * Use the source version to generate changelog URIs, not the binary
    version (LP: #655917).

This continues to cause confusion and occasional support requests; I think we should backport this fix to xenial and bionic.
