I get the following error message from Update Manager 2.8.7:
It looks like the error starts with this:

So, it must be related to the initial . at the beginning of the string...
Where is the script located so I can remove the . ?
Running apt dist-upgrade and using Synaptic give the exact same error.
I tried running apt dist-upgrade while logged in as root and it did the same.
