Do you have the "debconf" package installed?

Do you have the "cdebconf" package installed?

The apt-listchanges failure could happen if you have "cdebconf" installed instead of "debconf". Is that possible?


rhertzog (administrator)

I filed https://bugs.debian.org/855069 on the Debian side. I'm not going to do more than that.

No feedback from the reporter. Closing ticket.
