Bug Description

I was on an installed Xenial system with dist upgraded and dpkg failed to install the lubuntu plymouth theme. I think this crashed and the system brough up apport to report this bug.

I was on a xenial system and the plymoth did not isntall and apport brought up a bug against plymoth.

 Description: Ubuntu Xenial Xerus (development branch)
Release: 16.04

I expected the package from dist-upgrade to work instead it broke and did not install. and dpkg returned an error code of one.
