This bug was fixed in the package hw-detect - 1.117ubuntu2.3

hw-detect (1.117ubuntu2.3) xenial; urgency=medium

  * install opal-prd on OpenPOWER machines. LP: #1555904
  * Drop hw-detect.pre-pkgsel.d/20install-hwpackages, as it installs
    universe package, which is probably in itself not useful on
    Ubuntu. LP: #1577833

Bug description:

   * Default install of Ubuntu server, should not install universe
  packages, specifically discover

  [Test Case]

   * Use d-i installer, to perform a server-like install

   * Check that there are no universe packages installed by default

   * Specifically check that discover package is not installed

  [Regression Potential]

   * discover appears to be a useless package which does not enable any
  extra hardware at either install, or post-boot time. Less disk space
  is used, as well as less time, and non-supported package is not
  installed unconditionally onto the target systems.

  [Other Info]
   * Original bug report

  We detected following information

  Manuell Installation in Standard-Mode (not Expert Mode)with following
  selection: standard system utilities, OpenSSH server, Basic Ubuntu
  server for s390-tools:

  Following information are provided by the ubuntu-support-status tool.

  Supported until January 2017 (9m):
  libpfm4 s390-tools sysconfig-hardware

  Supported until April 2019 (3y):
  discover discover-data libdiscover2

  The assumption is, the 16.04 LTS will have 5 year support for each
  package within release/main
