Public bug reported:

Yesterday unattended-upgrades required a reboot for kernel updates as
expected. But today unattended-upgrades required a reboot even though
there were no updates.

On this machine (16.04 server) unattended-upgrades is configured to
reboot automatically.

This also happened on another 16.04 server with default unattended-
upgrades configuration. It displayed the *******System restart
required******* message. The same on a 14.04 server and a 14.04 desktop.

Expected behaviour: Not to do an unnecessary reboot.

Let me know what other information I can provide.
