For focal we should actually remove this script, since nss-mdns automatically performs this behaviour and doesn't rely on the "hack" of stopping avahi-daemon to prevent resolution of .local domains via DNS.

If this error is serious we could consider backport to stable releases.

(for clarity nss-mdns 0.14 does this behavior itself automatically, in 0.10 in bionic does not)

I think the script will still work most of the time so severity is not too high.

avahi (0.7-4ubuntu7) focal; urgency=medium

  * Remove hack, the feature is provided by
    libnss-mdns now (lp: #1870824)
  * debian/patches/local-only-services-support.patch:
    - replaced by the upstream commited version, part of the code which
      was there to workaround a ippusbxd issue has been removed since
      the problem has been resolved in cups now
