  apt (1.6.17) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Bump cache minor version for kernel collection.
    The previous update introduced the new kernel autoremoval code which
    collects kernels in the cache as providers of a $kernel package.
    We need to bump the cache minor version for this as otherwise the
    $kernel package might not exist and all kernels end up autoremovable
    until a package got installed or sources updated.
