This proposal supersedes a proposal from 2020-07-30.

Description of the change

See for details.

The overall plan is to have motd-news only enabled on server systems after this upgrade. What it does:
- the /etc/default/motd-news config file is moved from base-files to a NEW package motd-news-config. If it has modifications, they are preserved
- ubuntu-server has a dependency on motd-news-config (this MP)
- new base-files breaks old ubuntu-server, forcing an upgrade if it is installed

This MP cannot land until motd-news-config is accepted into the archive.
