Default Possible fix to the problem

I've been having a similar problem as everyone else and I think I might have found a fix for the unattended updates.
in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades there is a blacklist area:
// List of packages to not update
Unattended-Upgrade::Package-Blacklist {

I've added "maildrop"; into this list and will let things run and see if that removes maildrop from the unattended updates. This does not effect manually updating though and even using the previous commands to hold or add maildrop to the don't update lists causes apt-get upgrade to want to upgrade maildrop.

Something I just noticed was that executing:
echo "maildrop hold"|dpkg --set-selections
using sudo has started giving me an error:
dpkg: operation requires read/write access to dpkg status area

I hadn't noticed this when I issued that command a few days ago when troubleshooting this problem. If I sudo su and run that command it runs without error and if I run apt-get upgrade maildrop is now in the list of packages to hold back. So hopefully the combination of this and adding it to the black list in the other file will solve these issues until what ever changes that were made in the ?new? maildrop package are made compatible with ISPConfig.
