This bug was fixed in the package dictd - 1.12.1+dfsg-8

dictd (1.12.1+dfsg-8) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Ignore errors of update-inetd --disable/--remove, as update-inetd has
    recently stared failing on missing /etc/inetd.conf (closes: #906420).
    This is not done for --add/--enable, basing on the assumption that if
    user selects inetd-mode only if inetd is already installed.
  * Standards-Version: 4.2.0.
