  apt (2.0.4) focal; urgency=medium

  [ Julian Andres Klode ]
  * Merge 2.0.2ubuntu0.1 and 2.0.2ubuntu0.2 security updates with 2.0.3
  * pkgnames: Correctly set the default for AllNames to false, and do not
    exclude virtual packages if --all-names is specified (LP: #1876495)
  * Remove expired domain that became nsfw from debian/changelog
  * patterns: Terminate short pattern by ~ and ! (LP: #1911676)
  * 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.

  [ JCGoran ]
  * Fix "extended_states" typo in apt-mark(8) (Closes: #969086)
