Bug Description

ubuntu@c14:~$ sudo perf
perf_3.8.0-19 not found
You may need to install linux-tools-3.8.0-19
ubuntu@c14:~$ sudo apt-get install linux-tools-3.8.0-19
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package linux-tools-3.8.0-19
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'linux-tools-3.8.0-19'

The control file lists armhf as a valid arch for this package, but the buildlog reported:
dpkg-genchanges: warning: package linux-tools-3.8.0-19 in control file but not in files list

linux-tools-3.5.0-28 was available in quantal on armhf, so this appears to be a regression.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed' to 'verification-done'.

If verification is not done by one week from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

The verification of this Stable Release Update has completed successfully and the package has now been released to -updates. Subsequently, the Ubuntu Stable Release Updates Team is being unsubscribed and will not receive messages about this bug report. In the event that you encounter a regression using the package from -updates please report a new bug using ubuntu-bug and tag the bug report regression-update so we can easily find any regresssions.
