s390-tools (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
Release: 16.04

$ apt-cache policy s390-tools
  Installed: 1.34.0-0ubuntu8.1
  Candidate: 1.34.0-0ubuntu8.1

Packaging needs to handle the installation of dependencies.

The unexpected output is shown here:

ethtool is part of the server seed and should be installed.

Looking at the installer logs, something odd seems to happening.

SET tasksel/first standard system utilities, OpenSSH server, Basic Ubuntu server

Is quite odd, I would have used: standard, openssh-server, server

Nonetheless ethtool does not seem to be selected during installation.

Would it make sense to add a dependency from s390-tools to ethtool?
