Bug Description

The preffered way to get encrypted disks, these days, is to do full disk encryption using LUKS.

If per-directory encryption is required, it is recommended to us fscrypt support in e.g. ext4.

Support for installing using ecryptfs encrypted /home has been disabled in the installers.

Please demote ecryptfs-utils to universe for bionic+
