I agree with Aaron and Daniel. I have a custom MOTD generation script
that uses the output of updater-notifier `head -qn 2 /var/lib/update-
notifier/updates-available`. Not having any text in that file if there
are no updates available breaks the layout of the MOTD output.

Regardless of my custom setup, having the blank lines in the default
MOTD generated by `/etc/motd.d/90-updates-available` does make me think
something is broken. It's nice to have the validation of "0 packages can
be updated", IMO.
