Bug#980049: fwupd: Should fwupd specify dbus as a dependency?

Package: fwupd
Version: 1.5.3-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainers,

thanks for maintaining this package and taking the time to consider this bug

On a minimal system, it happened to me that when installing fwupd, dbus is
has not been installed as a dependency.
Without dbus, fwupd turned out to be unusable ("Failed to connect to daemon"
on ``fwupdmgr refresh``).

Do we maybe need to list the package "dbus" as a dependency of "fwupd"?
