Is this really Fix Released in bionic? The gitlab link pasted above
seems to be 3 days old and I don't see the fix being mentioned in the
last gnome-software version. Does the same apply for artful?

Title:
  Report fwupd version in user agent

Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in gnome-software source package in Xenial:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  [Impact]
  Some firmware updates fail require a recent version of fwupd to work. 
Upstream has requested we update the user agent sent in HTTP requests so that 
they can stop sending firmware to clients that may not work.

  [Test Case]
  Check with the fwupd server that the correct user agent is being sent.

  [Regression Potential]
  Low. The fix is simply to add to the user-agent string used in HTTP requests.

  There are some situations that LVFS shouldn't be offering firmware to certain 
machines.
  Upstream is going to use the user agent for filtering these firmware 
offerings and it would be good if gnome-software can report the user agent.

  The following has been added to the gnome 3.20 tree:
  
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-software/commit/9bf4ecef4daa2d31827810d672458768c3c2a2b3

  Can this please be backported to xenial?

  Bionic can already report this as part of 3.26 gnome-software.
