Seeing this with a couple other packages now (augeas-lenses and puppet-lint). The reason is because unattended-upgrades does not have the backports repo available. However that has not changed. Best I can tell the new behavior is "apt-get upgrade -s" returning results from the backports repo, and showing the new candidate. I am currently wondering what might have caused that.

cwdent claimed this task.

I looked back and rsyslog was set to install from backports like 6 months ago. What I don't understand is why it is not installed from backports right now. I updated them manually. I'll reopen if this comes up again.
