I am not even sure that this is still an issue: Michael Biebl and me did 
a few tests (Debian 10, testing and Ubuntu 20.04) and convert-usrmerge 
never failed.

Is anybody actually able to reproduce that on a Debian >= 10 system?
Again, nothing bad will happen if you try and trigger that code path: 
just follow the instructions that will tell you to reboot the system and 
then run convert-usrmerge again.
