unattended-upgrades (1.4) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Skip starting init.d script in debhelper-generated postinst part
    (LP: #1778800)
  * Use "deb-systemd-invoke start" instead of "systemctl start" in postinst.
    It is used only in a workaround applied for a Debian bug and for upgrading
    from pre-bionic versions.
  * Clear cache when autoremoval is invalid for a package set marked for
    removal (LP: #1779157)
  * Clear cache after failed commits to return from a possibly invalid state
  * Unlock for dpkg operations with apt_pkg.pkgsystem_unlock_inner() when it
    is available, also stop running when reacquiring the lock fails.
    Thanks to to Julian Andres Klode for original partial patch
  * Use fully qualified domain name in email subject.
  * Send email about all failures and crashes (Closes: #898607)
  * Add short textual summary of the results in the summary email
  * Recommend overriding configuration in a separate file.
    This can be better than changing /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades
    because package updates don't conflict with local changes this way.
  * Adjust candidates only for packages to be possibly installed
    (Closes: #892028, #899366) (LP: #1396787)
  * Add Unattended-Upgrade::OnlyOnACPower config file example for all
  * debian/control: Drop redundant Testsuite: autopkgtest field to keep Lintian
  * Bump Standards-Version to 4.1.4
  * Add debian/tests/upgrade-all-security to install all current security
    updates. On development releases this tests latest stable, on stable
    releases it tests the release itself.
  * Skip updates on metered connections (Closes: #855570)
  * Quote shell variables in autopkgtest
  * Stop u-u early when it should stop later anyway
  * Measure time for --dry-run and after all updates are installed in
  * Filter out packages cheaper when they are not from allowed origins
  * Collect autoremovable packages, too, when looking for upgradable ones

unattended-upgrades: automatic installation of security upgrades

 This package can download and install security upgrades automatically
 and unattended, taking care to only install packages from the
 configured APT source, and checking for dpkg prompts about
 configuration file changes.
 This script is the backend for the APT::Periodic::Unattended-Upgrade
