This bug was fixed in the package software-properties - 0.98.6

software-properties (0.98.6) focal; urgency=medium

  * cloudarchive: Enable support for the Ussuri Ubuntu Cloud Archive on
    18.04 (LP: #1852489).
  * softwareproperties/dbus/ In SetUpdateInterval,
    convert days argument from dbus.Int32 to int before passing to
    set_update_interval. This fixes a test failures as apt_pkg.config.set
    didn't understand a dbus.Int32 type (LP: #1852772).
  * debian/control: Add gpg and gpg-agent to Build-Depends to fix failing
    unit tests (LP: #1852773).

Bug description:
  FAIL: test_updates_interval (tests.test_dbus.TestDBus)                        
  Traceback (most recent call last):                                            
    File "/build/software-properties-0.98.6/tests/", line 332, in 
      self.assertTrue('APT::Periodic::Update-Package-Lists "1";' in config)     
  AssertionError: False is not true   

  Looking closer, while in the SetUpdateInterval() method in
  softwareproperties/dbus/, days is of
  dbus.Int32 type. A simple print output shows:


  D-Bus is statically typed, unlike python. More details at:

  I think once we're in the dbus method (SetUpdateInterval() method in
  softwareproperties/dbus/ we can convert the
  dbus.Int32 to an int.
