Also had this (but on the normal, not -extra kernel package) and there are two more bug reports about this (from versions -15 to -18 I think, one is triaged, one new, this one confirmed)

I had a warning in the console something like "missing /usr/bin/python3.4 (removed)"
ran sudo dpkg-reconfigure [kernel-pkg] on the kernel package and didn't have an issue again..

This looks like a failure in the plymouth hook:

    update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.3.0-7-generic
    sed: 無法讀取 /usr/share/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-text/ubuntu-text.plymouth: 沒有此一檔案或目錄
    E: /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/plymouth failed with return 2.
    update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-4.3.0-7-generic with 2.

affects: initramfs-tools (Ubuntu) → plymouth (Ubuntu)
