Bug Description

net-tools has been replaced by iproute2; so uses of ifconfig should be replaced with ip ('ip link' or 'ip address').

Similarly, netstat is replaced by ss, and route is replaced by ip ('ip route').

bind9 has already updated the uses of ifconfig (in to be able to detect that 'ip' is available and use that instead.

Let's finish this transition and stop depending on 'net-tools' and pulling that in main via bind9.

bind9 (1:9.11.5.P4+dfsg-5.1ubuntu3) focal; urgency=medium

  * use iproute2 instead of net-tools (LP: #1850699):
    - d/control: replace net-tools depends with iproute2
    - d/bind9.init: use ip instead of ifconfig
  * d/bind9.install, d/control, d/rules: re-enable lmdb, which is now
    in main.
