I had a similar problem described here:
Stephen Powell gave the same advice as above. :-) Following that,
I tried this:
# grep -r yaird /etc/*
And got this:
/etc/kernel-img.conf: ramdisk = /usr/sbin/mkinitrd.yaird
I.e. in /etc/kernel-img.conf is a line you need to change to this:
ramdisk = /usr/sbin/update-initramfs
Worked for me. I wonder if a bug ever got filed....
