** Description changed:

  [Impact]
  
   * Current users running Xenial will be unable to upgrade to Yakkety via
  the GUI, due to missing package.  The button to update basically does
  nothing.
  
   * Fixing this will allow the significant proportion of users likely to
  upgrade via the GUI route to do so.
  
   * The package ubuntu-release-upgrader-qt is a required component for
  GUI distribution upgrade in kubuntu, so reintroducing a dependency
  ensures this  is installed by default for such users.
  
  [Test Case]
  
   * In software sources set the default Release upgrade path to Normal to
  allow Xenial to Yakkety upgrade.
  
   * In plasma-discover when offered the upgrade click the 'Upgrade'
  button to accept.
  
-  * Without ubuntu-release-upgrader-qt installed the upgrade does not
- launch - failing without any apparent error message to the user. In
- effect the button appears to do nothing.
+  * As tested in up to date xenial, without ubuntu-release-upgrader-qt
+ installed the upgrade does not launch - failing without any apparent
+ error message to the user. In effect the button appears to do nothing.
  
- * With ubuntu-release-upgrader-qt the upgrade launches and continues as
+  * With ubuntu-release-upgrader-qt the upgrade launches and continues as
  intended.

  [Regression Potential]
  
   * This is the installation a missing package via an updated dependency,
  which is only used during release upgrades. Therefore it is anticipated
  that the regression potential is minimal. We are restoring a package
  that was always intended to be installed.
  
  [Original report:]
  
  Xenial 16.04.1
  plasma-discover (5.6.2-1ubuntu1)
  
  Previously in wily muon-updater depended on ubuntu-release-upgrader-qt,
  meaning this was installed by default.
  
  In Xenial muon-updater became a transitional dummy package for plasma-
  discover-updater, and this dependency was not carried over, resulting in
  ubuntu-release-upgrader-qt not being installed by default and a GUI
  release upgrade to Yakkety 16.10 failing silently to the user after the
  'Upgrade' button in software upgrades is clicked.
  
  The bug is initially filed against plasma-discover, however it may be
  more appropriate to update dependencies of another package instead.
