    - json: Flush standard file descriptors before calling hooks

    - non-code changes:
      + test/json: Make the test hook more reliable
      + Fix a typo in json-hooks-protocol.md (thanks to Brian Murray)

Version: 1.6.13 2021-04-07 04:06:48 UTC

  apt (1.6.13) bionic; urgency=medium

  [ David Kalnischkies ]
  * Fix incorrect base64 encoding due to int promotion (LP: #1916050)
  * Harden test for no new acquires after transaction abort (Closes: #984966)
    (LP: #1918920)

  [ Julian Andres Klode ]
  * Implement update --error-on=any (Closes: #594813) (LP: #1693900)
  * Include all translations when building the cache (LP: #1907850)
  * Add basic support for the Protected field
  * Do not require force-loopbreak on Important packages
    (Closes: #983014) (LP: #1916725)
  * Protect currently running kernel at run-time (LP: #1615381)
  * Make ADDARG{,C}() macros expand to single statements
  * Improve immediate configuration handling (LP: #1871268)
    - Do not immediately configure m-a: same packages in lockstep
    - Ignore failures from immediate configuration. This does not change the
      actual installation ordering - we never passed the return code to the
      caller and installation went underway anyway if it could be ordered at a
      later stage, this just removes spurious after-the-fact errors.
      (Closes: #973305, #188161, #211075, #649588)
  * Default Acquire::AllowReleaseInfoChange::Suite to "true" (Closes: #931566)
    (LP: #1918907)

  [ Balint Reczey ]
  * Set LC_ALL=C.UTF-8 for unattended-upgrades environment when parsing its --help
    (LP: #1806076)
