Martin, if you want to get this bug fixed please click on the link
Julian gave in #89 and rewrite the bug so it can be fixed in Ubuntu
16.04 and 17.04. It won't be fixed until that happens (and, ideally,
would be good if you could check it's working in 17.10, where it's
already been patched, as well). We know it's a problem but someone needs
to do the work to get it fixed (I don't feel able to sorry).

Bug description:
  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

  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/
  -rw-r----- 1 root root        0 Sep 20 06:36 lock
  drwx------ 2 _apt root    16384 Sep 24 15:25 partial

  oem@u64:~$ sudo ls -l /var/lib/update-notifier/package-data-downloads/
  drwxr-xr-x 2 _apt root 4096 Sep 22 23:33 partial
