This bug was fixed in the package util-linux - 2.30.2-0.1ubuntu2

util-linux (2.30.2-0.1ubuntu2) bionic; urgency=medium

  * No change rebuild to try to resolve an outdated translations issue,
    the package was configured on launchpad to share its strings with an
    upstream vcs but the corresponding import is failing for some years.
    We are trying to go back to use the source package translations
    instead now (lp: #1730793)

  Translations not imported from upstream

Bug description:
  The listing of Ubuntu source package translations (for Danish) reveals
  that the last import of translations for util-linux happened in 2011:

  The Ubuntu source package version is 2.30, which appears to be from
  2017 (on my Ubuntu 16.04 it is 2.27 which is also relatively new).
  Either way it should have imported the translations from 2017.  Indeed
  util-linux has been translated very well in Danish for quite a few

  More precisely, 4000 translations are available and they have not been
  imported for (apparently) 6 years, leaving Danish at the level of 600

  I suspect this is not really an issue with the util-linux source
  package, but rather with the whole Ubuntu/Launchpad translations
  workflow.  I can see that several packages have similar problems, and
  that is probably just the tip of the iceberg.  Unfortunately I have no
  clue how to approach that - at least I cannot file a bug report
  against The Whole Thing.  So if someone could speak to someone who
  could speak to someone who can actually get this to work, it would
  also be extremely good.
