Ok, stable.

This happend when we had a transition of maintainers upstream. So 
I think we carried the rename.ul man page back then a little too 
long and so it went into Bullseye when it should't have.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

You have the following options:
1. Ignore the translated man page

2. Install the backport for manpages-de / manpages-fr
   This also contains more and improved man page translations

3. Upgrade to testing/bookworm

In Testing/Bookworm, rename.ul is both present in english, as well as
in German, French and Ukrainian. So everything is fine there.
