Related project: Update manager.
Status: Won't implement
For various reasons ubuntu automatic updates can fail. For example a laptop is plugged in to power and starts auto updating. It's the suspended and removed from power until it shuts off hard. Now the system is likely broken beyond a novice users ability to fix.
Is it a bug? It doesn't seem like something wrong with any particular package. It seems more like an enhancement to fool proof updates. Let me know what you think, I could submit it as a bug related to unattended-upgrades perhaps.

Closing in Brainstorm.
This kind of enhancement should be contributed by the community. We left the idea open long enough to get you feedback!
