Bug Description

ifmetric return exit status 1 and "Interface 'pppoe-provider' not existent" message
if I configure PPPoE via /etc/network/interfaces like this:

auto eth2
# no ip address
iface eth2 inet manual
auto pppoe-provider
iface pppoe-provider inet ppp
 metric 50
 pre-up /sbin/ip link set dev eth2 up
 provider pppoe-provider

This happens if I try to use

ifup pppoe-provider

instead of

pon pppoe-provider

so the workaround is simple (just don't use ifup for such interface), but error message is confusing...

My be should check $METHOD (static|dhcp vs ppp etc) in /etc/network/if-up.d/ifmetric ?
