Hopes someone will do the change too for synaptic, which display that
error only the first upgrade is done.

Bug description:
  READ ME FIRST
  =============
  This is a cosmetic issue. The warning message is just that— a warning. Though 
the message comes up, there is no problem with the install/upgrade happening 
like normal. That said, feel free to ignore it. It will get fixed, but it's 
nowhere near as urgent as bugs that actually result in the wrong behavior 
rather than just a simple extra message.

  update-notifier SRU
  -------------------
  [Impact]
  Cosmetic. Warnings when installing packages using update-notifier downloading 
stuff

  [Test case]

  Install flashplugin-installer with apt and check that the output does
  not contain a message like this:

  W: Can't drop privileges for downloading as file '...' couldn't be
  accessed by user '_apt'

  [Regression Potential]

  It just chowns /var/lib/update-notifier/package-data-
  downloads/partial/ to _apt:root, there should not be any regression.

  Original report
  ---------------

  Recently we got new versions for synaptic 0.82+build1 & apt 1.1.3, but
  now get that error when installing/upgrading some packages:

  Setting up libc6-dbg:amd64 (2.21-0ubuntu5) ...
  Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.21-0ubuntu5) ...
  W: Can't drop privileges for downloading as file 
'/root/.synaptic/tmp//tmp_cl' couldn't be accessed by user '_apt'. - 
pkgAcquire::Run (13: Permission denied)

  From nautilus, i'm seeing a /root/ folder locked (x on its icon) and
  the folder is empty (no /.synaptic/ sub-folder or file), so the above
  error.

  oem@u64:~$ ls -l .synaptic
  total 4
  -rw-rw-r-- 1 oem oem   0 Aug 25 11:19 options
  -rw-rw-r-- 1 oem oem 236 Aug 25 11:19 synaptic.conf

  oem@u64:~$ ls -l /var/lib/apt/lists/
  ....
