Bug Description

[Impact]
All Ubuntu users.

[Test case]
1) Look at the netplan manpage:

man netplan

2) Verify that the route 'type' parameter no longer shows the typo of "prohibited", code accepts only "prohibit" as a value.

[Regression potential]
None. This only affects the manpage, where a typo has been fixed.

---

The docs are wrong and misleading here, and you'd only find out the correct thing by guessing or reading the code.

I have verified that the manpage correctly reads "prohibit" instead of "prohibited" as a valid value for route type.

Marking verification-done.
