Bug Description

http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/bionic/man8/update-initramfs.8.html

shows it is from the live-tools package whereas in the OS:

dpkg -S update-initramfs.8
initramfs-tools: /usr/share/man/man8/update-initramfs.8.gz

There seems to be a direct clash with two packages providing the same file with different content.
