Bug#246906: /usr/sbin/update-alternatives: 'update-alternatives --sane' should clean up the database

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.21
Severity: normal
File: /usr/sbin/update-alternatives

I have the same problem that has been reported in #76295. The dangling symlinks.

  * If there are 0 alternatives, the entry should be deleted.
  * If there is only 1 alternative, the link should be adjusted to
    this alternative.
