These commands are part of the prerm script of the docbook-xml etch
package (4.4-5). So this shouldn't be necessary.
I clearly need help and I get the impression, that the problem only
appears on the amd64 architecture.
CCing debian-release, debian-devel for help
Some users reported an issue upgrading docbook-xml from Etch to
Lenny/Sid. I'm unable to reproduce it and I currently have no idea,
what's going on. From reading the reports it might be an amd64-specific
issue - which is some kind of surprising, because docbook-xml is
Arch:all. But maybe the package has been corrupted on the amd64
installation CD/DVDs. The fact, that after a reinstallation of the
docbook-xml package, the issue seems to disappear could be a hint, that
this is the case. I really have no clue (and not much time till the end
of next week). So I hereby request your help.
I really appreciate any information, which helps to track down the issue
and fix it. An NMU is of course allowed if you find the cause.
