--- Begin Message ---Package: initramfs-tools-core Version: 0.130 Severity: normal Dear Maintainer, * What led up to the situation? Context is that this is a minimally-installed chroot (minimally installed with `debootstrap`) containing stretch. * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or ineffective)? Attempted to use `apt-get` to install the following package list with '--no-install-recommends' specified: cryptsetup firmware-bnx2 firmware-bnx2x firmware-linux grub-pc linux-image-amd64 lvm2 openssh-server sudo * What was the outcome of this action? During the `apt-get` processing of the above package list, `update-initramfs` died with an error: E: busybox or busybox-static, version 1:1.22.0-17~ or later, is required but not installed. * What outcome did you expect instead? I expected it to work -- if `update-initramfs` depends on busybox or busybox-static in order to complete successfully, then those packages should be a _dependency_, not a _recommendation_! -- System Information: Debian Release: 9.4 APT prefers stable-updates APT policy: (500, 'stable-updates'), (500, 'stable') Architecture: amd64 (x86_64) Foreign Architectures: i386 Kernel: Linux 4.9.0-6-amd64 (SMP w/1 CPU core) Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8), LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash Init: systemd (via /run/systemd/system) Versions of packages initramfs-tools-core depends on: ii cpio 2.11+dfsg-6 ii klibc-utils 2.0.4-9 ii kmod 23-2 ii udev 232-25+deb9u2 Versions of packages initramfs-tools-core recommends: ii busybox 1:1.22.0-19+b3 Versions of packages initramfs-tools-core suggests: pn bash-completion <none> -- no debconf information
