  [sru] missing depends on ubuntu-release-upgrader-qt – breaks GUI
  upgrades to yakkety

Bug description:

   * Current users running Xenial will be unable to upgrade to Yakkety
  via the GUI, due to missing package.  The button to update basically
  does nothing.

   * Fixing this will allow the significant proportion of users likely
  to upgrade via the GUI route to do so.

   * The package ubuntu-release-upgrader-qt is a required component for
  GUI distribution upgrade in kubuntu, so reintroducing a dependency
  ensures this  is installed by default for such users.

  [Test Case]

   * In software sources set the default Release upgrade path to Normal
  to allow Xenial to Yakkety upgrade.

   * In plasma-discover when offered the upgrade click the 'Upgrade'
  button to accept.

   * As tested in up to date xenial, without ubuntu-release-upgrader-qt
  installed the upgrade does not launch - failing without any apparent
  error message to the user. In effect the button appears to do nothing.

   * With ubuntu-release-upgrader-qt the upgrade launches and continues
  as intended.

  Tested and confirmed using the updated package in

  [Regression Potential]

   * This is the installation a missing package via an updated
  dependency, which is only used during release upgrades. Therefore it
  is anticipated that the regression potential is minimal. We are
  restoring a package that was always intended to be installed.

  [Original report:]

  Xenial 16.04.1
  plasma-discover (5.6.2-1ubuntu1)

  Previously in wily muon-updater depended on ubuntu-release-upgrader-
  qt, meaning this was installed by default.

  In Xenial muon-updater became a transitional dummy package for plasma-
  discover-updater, and this dependency was not carried over, resulting
  in ubuntu-release-upgrader-qt not being installed by default and a GUI
  release upgrade to Yakkety 16.10 failing silently to the user after
  the 'Upgrade' button in software upgrades is clicked.

  The bug is initially filed against plasma-discover, however it may be
  more appropriate to update dependencies of another package instead.
