The problem occurs both on amd64 platforms as well as Kali on arm (RPi)
|Steps To Reproduce||sudo apt install cryptsetup-initramfs|
||The package "cryptsetup-initramfs" is now included in Kali, if ever you do a fresh install from a weekly image, or if you wait for 2021.4 to be released (soon). So there should be no need to install it, hence no more problem? Also to be honest I have no idea what this error is about, I didn't find anything in the Debian bug tracker...|
||I just filed https://bugs.debian.org/1001063 to notify the Debian package maintainer.|
