Public bug reported:

Missing font dependency --> plymouth initramfs hook fails --> update-
initramfs fails --> new kernel failed to install.

Bionic Lubuntu alternate 20180221

update-initramfs -c -k all

It gives an error:

Rebuilding patient
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.13.0-32-generic
cp: cannot stat '/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejavu/DejaVuSerif.ttf': No such 
file or directory
E: /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/plymouth failed with return 1.
update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-4.13.0-32-generic with 1.

I checked and the directory /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejavu/ does
not exist.

Fyi...the 4.15 kernel just came out.  This caused the 4.15 kernel to
fail to install.

If I apt-get install fonts-dejavu-core it will work around this issue.
