Bug Description

Looking at manpages.ubuntu.com for interfaces(5) and there are two different source packages that get referenced:

12.04 -> 15.10 we see ifupdown_0.X as the source

http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/trusty/en/man5/interfaces.5.html

16.04 and newer point to ifupdown2 which is in universe, not main.

http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/en/man5/interfaces.5.html

I don't think we should be pointing to ifupdown2 which it's not in main
