Add ubuntu-advantage-tools to Recommends on ubuntu-minimal

Hi everyone,

Recently, we have received a request about moving ubuntu-advantage-tools from Depends to Recommends on ubuntu-minimal and update-manager as can be seen here:

The problem today of ubuntu-advantage-tools sitting on Depends is that removing this package will also trigger the removal of several core Ubuntu packages on the system as well.

We want to ask for opinions of this change to other Ubuntu developers, to see if we are not missing any other aspect around the original decision to include the package into Depends.

Best regards,
Lucas Moura
