Bug#409516: libc6: error in dpkg --compare-versions call



Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.6.ds1-10

During a new installation using D-I/debootstrap of testing I noticed the
following error in the syslog. It looks like dpkg --compare-versions is
not called correctly, possibly because this is an initial installation
and not an upgrade. I suspect the error to be in the postinst.

Cheers,
FJP
