Newer versions of UpdateManager.Core.UpdateList (in python3-update-manager) try
reading /etc/machine-id first and only fall back to /var/lib/dbus/machine-id,
but the trusty version unconditionally opens /var/lib/dbus/machine-id (and
fails if dbus is not installed and consequently that file does not exist).
I do not think that backporting this change will be sufficient, because you
cannot guarantee that /etc/machine-id exists on a trusty system.
