Bug description:
  The Ubuntu Error Tracker has been receiving reports about a problem regarding 
packagekit.  This problem was most recently seen with package version 
0.8.17-4ubuntu6~gcc5.4ubuntu1.1, the problem page at 
contains more details, including versions of packages affected, stacktrace or 
traceback, and individual crash reports.

   * Impact: PackageKit immediately crashes in GetUpdateDetail()

   * Test case:
     - Be on a system (container, VM, or real iron) with at least one 
upgradeable package. If you don't have one, downgrade tzdata:
        sudo apt-get install tzdata=2016j-0ubuntu0.16.04
     - Run "pkcon get-updates" to see upgradeable packages.
     - Run "pkcon get-update-detail tzdata" (or for a different package).
     - Current PackageKit immediately crashes (message from pkcon and systemctl 
status packagekit), with this fix it should survive and show some data 
(changelog doesn't work though).

   * Regression potential: Update details are currently completely
  broken, so very little to regress there. As for dropping the browser
  plugin package: The current package stopped working long ago with
  current firefox; however, the package from xenial-release will still
  be around. All in all this shouldn't change anything visible.

   * Upstream fix:
  https://github.com/hughsie/PackageKit/commit/18c56fa52 (only the
  acqpkitstatus.cpp bit)

   * Downstream packaging change to drop browser plugin:
