dpkg 1.19.7ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

dpkg (1.19.7ubuntu1) eoan; urgency=medium

  * Merge from current Debian testing; remaining Ubuntu changes:
    - Change native source version/format mismatch errors into warnings
      until the dust settles on Debian bug 737634 about override options.
    - Add DPKG_UNTRANSLATED_MESSAGES environment check so that higher-level
      tools can get untranslated dpkg terminal log messages while at the
      same time having translated debconf prompts.
    - Special-case arm{el,hf} ELF objects in Shlibs/Objdump.pm for multilib.
    - Map unqualified package names of multiarch-same packages to the native
      arch instead of throwing an error, so that we don't break on upgrade
      when there are unqualified names stored in the dpkg trigger database.
    - Apply a workaround from mvo to consider ^rc packages as multiarch,
      during the dpkg consistency checks. (see LP: 1015567 and 1057367).
    - dpkg-gencontrol: Fix Package-Type override handling for ddeb support.
    - Add Zstd compression and decompression support for binary packages.

  [ Guillem Jover ]
  * dpkg: Fix off-by-one error in dpkg --abort-error. Closes: #924886
    Thanks to Tom Goulet <email address hidden>.
  * dpkg: Set the force defaults before loading the config file, otherwise we
    incorrectly override them. Regression introduced in dpkg 1.19.5.
    Closes: #928671
  * dpkg: Split the trigger dependtry into two, the second of which will be
    the one checking trigger cycles when deferring trigger processing due to
    unsatisfiable dependencies. Closes: #928429
  * dpkg-deb: Validate ar member magic before normalizing any of its fields.
  * dpkg-deb: Honor --nocheck when building packages with newlines in
    filenames. Regression introduced in dpkg 1.18.1. Closes: #929727
  * Documentation:
    - rootless-builds.txt: Expand what the builder means. Mention the
      dpkg-deb option to use to set the owner and group to root. And reword
      the prototyping section to be less confusing with what is currently
      implemented. Closes: #929019
    - README: Clarify when autopoint is needed. Closes: #929601
    - Fix typos in docs and output strings. Warned by codespell.

Binary packages built by this source

dpkg: Debian package management system

 This package provides the low-level infrastructure for handling the
 installation and removal of Debian software packages.
 .
 For Debian package development tools, install dpkg-dev.

dpkg-dbgsym: debug symbols for dpkg
dpkg-dev: Debian package development tools

 This package provides the development tools (including dpkg-source)
 required to unpack, build and upload Debian source packages.
 .
 Most Debian source packages will require additional tools to build;
 for example, most packages need make and the C compiler gcc.

dselect: Debian package management front-end

 dselect is a high-level interface for managing the installation and
 removal of Debian software packages.
 .
 Many users find dselect intimidating and new users may prefer to use
 apt-based user interfaces.

dselect-dbgsym: debug symbols for dselect
libdpkg-dev: Debian package management static library

 This package provides the header files and static library necessary to
 develop software using libdpkg, the same library used internally by dpkg.
 .
 Note though, that the API is to be considered volatile, and might change
 at any time, use at your own risk.
