auto-update should explicitly check for network

Description

If a machine's cable is unplugged, auto-update will continue to happily run, but aptitude update will fail. This is indistinguishable from some other failure. Instead, auto-udpate should check for network (ping its gateway, perhaps?) and fail with a "WARNING - no network, will retry later".
