Update Manager never shows changes in update description (Awen)

Using Trisquel 3.5 Awen. Update Manager shows constantly the busy cursor when there are updates and never shows the changelog for any package. This seemed strange.

Then I found this tidbit in ./xsession-errors
Unhandled exception in thread started by bound method MyCache.get_news_and_changelog of UpdateManager.Core.MyCache.MyCache object at 0xa17f$
Traceback (most recent call last):

"later.") % (srcpkg, srcver_epoch)
TypeError: not all arguments converted during string formatting

Sounds to me as if they're related. Maybe some python head could take a look at it.

If you reply to this, please remove my email address from the reply because I don't need any more spam. Thank you.

This is a strange bug. For a while in Dwyn, I had this problem. Then, with Awen, update descriptions worked properly...until just recently, when the problem returned.
