  update-manager (1: bionic; urgency=medium

  * Keep or delete packages after looping over all of them.
    This prevents the resolver from changing the packages in the loop resulting
    in not keeping some phased packages back from being upgraded. (LP: #1072136)
  * Stop lazy import of InstallBackends.
    Lazy imports made update-manager crash when an update-manager
    update changed the backend API and an updated incompatible backend
    was loaded to the not updated running update-manager process. (LP: #1795898)
  * Cancel transaction on exit only when Cancel button is active.
    Also ignore exception when cancellation fails. (LP: #1790670)

  update-manager (1: bionic; urgency=medium

  * Print transaction error and let the user try again applying updates
    (LP: #1317164)
  * Don't ask backend to do package operations aready done.
    Aptdaemon cancels the transaction when asked to remove packages already
    removed which results the failure being shown to the user. This
    is unnecessary as update-manager can just filter the package operations to
    be done using a fresh cache and decrease the likelyhood of hitting
    a race condition where packages to be removed are already removed.

  * Add support for HTTPS proxies; this breaks UpdateManager.Core.utils.init_proxy()
    API - the return value is now a dict, rather than a string (LP: #1771914).
