  ubuntu-release-upgrader (1:18.04.30) bionic; urgency=medium

  * data/release-upgrades: Clarify documentation regarding the behavior for
    different Prompt settings. (LP: #1795024)
  * do-release-upgrade: Utilize information regarding what Prompt is set to so
    that a more informative error message can be displayed.
    (LP: #1798618, LP: #1795024)
  * DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeCache.py: When calculating free space needed for
    mount points don't use a negative number as the buffer. (LP: #1786484)
  * DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeController.py: When rewriting sources.list entries
    check to see if the source provides packages for the release to which the
    upgrade is occurring. If it doesn't the entry is disabled thereby
    improving upgrades with PPAs. (LP: #1807043)
  * do-release-upgrade: add a parameter to allow third party mirrors and
    repositories, additionally pass along the environmental variable
    RELEASE_UPGRADER_ALLOW_THIRD_PARTY via pkexec and sudo. (LP: #1807032)
  * DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeCache.py: improve messaging regarding failures to
    calculate the upgrade and suggest using ppa-purge if PPAs are an issue.
  * DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeCache.py: in the event there is a failure to
    calculate the upgrade provide information about the log files in
    /var/log/dist-upgrade. (LP: #1771387)
  * debian/source_ubuntu-release-upgrader.py: Include xorg_fixup.log if it
  * DistUpgrade/xorg_fix_proprietary.py: modify how the system is checked to
    see if nvidia is being used, drop fglrx check since it has been
    deprecated. (LP: #1773637)
