apt-based user interfaces.

dpkg (1.18.4ubuntu1.6) xenial; urgency=medium

- dpkg: Initialize trigcyclenode's next member once
- dpkg: Factor trigproc_new_cyclenode() out from check_trigger_cycle()
- dpkg: Mark the package we are giving up on a trigger cycle as istobe normal
- dpkg: Switch dependtry from an int to an enum
- dpkg: Reset progress_bytrigproc once we have injected into the current iteration
- dpkg: Split trigger processing types into required, try-queued and try-deferred
- dpkg: Convert one trigger processing required type into the new try-queued
- dpkg: Move trigproc cycle reset inside try-deferred conditional
- dpkg: Introduce a new dependency try level for trigger processing
- dpkg: Introduce a new dependency try level for trigger cycle checks

dpkg (1.18.4ubuntu1.5) xenial; urgency=medium
* Apply patch from upstream to add frontend locking (LP: #1796081):
- Add support for frontend locking. This makes it possible for frontends
using this new protocol, to safely lock the dpkg database w/o risk of
race conditions with other dpkg instances or frontends supporting the
same protocol.

dpkg (1.18.4ubuntu1.4) xenial; urgency=medium
* Cherry-pick d01212f2d7e59fc713c66b5d60421ac2296c1463 from 1.18.5:
- Allow detached upstream orig tarball signatures when extracting
version 1.0 non-native source packages (LP: #1751114)

dpkg (1.18.4ubuntu1.3) xenial; urgency=medium
* Use ohshit() instead of internerr() for unhandled dpkg-split exit
codes. (i.e. do not abort). Closes: #812679, LP: #1601998
2017-04-10 - Adam Conrad <adconrad@ubuntu.com>
dpkg (1.18.4ubuntu1.2) xenial; urgency=medium
* Cherry-pick patch from git to limit preallocation to files over
16KiB, fixing installation performance regression (LP: #1663749)
2016-05-12 - Adam Conrad <adconrad@ubuntu.com>
dpkg (1.18.4ubuntu1.1) xenial; urgency=medium
* Add Breaks on ufw (<< 0.35-0ubuntu2~) for trigger loops (LP: #1571174)
2016-01-12 - Adam Conrad <adconrad@ubuntu.com>
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/Objdump.pm 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.
