updatedb has been changed to updatedb.findutils in Debian, it must be
called with either environment variables (PRUNEFS, PRUNEPATHS) for
filesystems/directories to be excluded, or with the correspnding

See /usr/bin/updatedb.findutils or /etc/cron.daily/locate.

calling updatedb with no arguments should give the same output on all
Debian/testing installations, in theory.
