Bug Description

Binary package hint: dlocate

man update-dlocatedb: "FILES: /var/lib/dlocate/dlocatedb.txt: plain text listing of all files belonging to all packages (optionally compressed)"
This file does not exist.
I expect that a file exists which a manpage mentions under the headline "FILES".
The DEB program package dlocate is installed.

FYI, the bug is now closed in Debian.

Please report bugs on Debian-native packages (those which do not end in -N or -N.N in the version number) directly to Debian if possible, this makes sure the original package maintainers will receive the bug reports. If the package is Ubuntu-specific or the version numbers deviate strongly, report the bug to Ubuntu.
