dpkg (1.18.4ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* Merge from Debian testing; remaining changes in the Ubuntu delta:
- Change native source version/format mismatch errors into warnings
until the dust settles on Debian bug 737634 about override options.
- Add DPKG_UNTRANSLATED_MESSAGES environment check so that higher-level
tools can get untranslated dpkg terminal log messages while at the
same time having translated debconf prompts.
- Special-case arm{el,hf} ELF objects in Shlibs/ for multilib.
- Map unqualified package names of multiarch-same packages to the native
arch instead of throwing an error, so that we don't break on upgrade
when there are unqualified names stored in the dpkg trigger database.
- Apply a workaround from mvo to consider ^rc packages as multiarch,
during the dpkg consistency checks. (see LP: 1015567 and 1057367).
- Carry over Breaks/Conflicts for triggers/upgrades until post-16.04.
