Yupp, I read this then and I did the dpkg-reconfigure to no
avail.  On April 2nd at 11:19 local time I purged and reinstalled
unattended-upgrades.  According to the log file
unattended-upgrade run on April, 2nd at 11:20 local time but did
not find anything to upgrade.  But actually there was a security
announcement on March, 28th and when I do apt-get update; apt-get
upgrade manually apt proposes to upgrade the eject package.  And:
unattended upgrades did not run yesterday or today.

This is all very strange.

Ciao; Gregor
