Bug Description

When trying to start "ding", I get an error:

> /usr/bin/ding: 3: exec: wish: not found

I removed ding (with --autoremove) and re-installed it again, but that does not help.

I had to uninstall tk and reinstall tk to get it working.
Must have had something to do with my upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04 two days ago.

The package tk contains only a symlink /usr/bin/wish pointing to /usr/bin/wish8.6 (which is provided by tk8.6 package, while tk depends on tk8.6).
If this mechanism does not work correct on your system or the upgrade fails, this isn't an issue in package ding (which depends on tk) but in tk/tk8.6 packages.
Maybe you should report it there?
