Bug Description

[impact]

'man systemd-resolve' fails

[test case]

$ man systemd-resolve
No manual entry for systemd-resolve

[regression potential]

incorrect man page result for resolvectl or resolvconf, or possibly users using deprecated systemd-resolve longer than they should

[scope]

this is needed in f and later

systemd-resolve was replaced with resolvectl between b and f, so the man page exists in b

[other info]

the systemd-resolve binary is a symlink to the real binary resolvectl, and users should use resolvectl for all new uses. A patch to the upstream man page was proposed and merged in this PR:
https://github.com/systemd/systemd/pull/20064

however that is being discussed and may be reverted in this PR:
https://github.com/systemd/systemd/pull/20077

as discussed in the revert PR, it's ok for upstream to elide docs about deprecated tooling; however distros should include deprecation info and thus I believe it's appropriate to include the man page symlink so users trying 'man systemd-resolve' will get the correct 'resolvectl' man page, which includes doc about how they shoudl start using 'resolvectl' instead

[original description]

On my Focal machine there is no file /usr/share/man/man1/systemd-resolve.1.gz
This means that man systemd-resolve fails.

http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/bionic/en/man1/systemd-resolve.1.html exists and has a link on top to 20.04LTS: it points to http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/focal/en/man1/systemd-resolve.1.html , that however 404's, and one ends up being redirected to Bionic's.

systemd-resolve has been deprecated in favor of the new name 'resolvectl', but the resolvectl binary does provide backwards compatibility with systemd-resolve (which is symlinked to resolvectl), so there should be *some* kind of manpage for it, as long as that backwards compatibility symlink is provided.

It looks like upstream, the systemd-resolve manpage was completely replaced by the resolvectl manpage in commit b69f810c8a2ece4e44c1b1898e237bb671b36a21. This should probably be discussed upstream to restore some kind of manpage for systemd-resolve compatibility mode, instead of just in Ubuntu.
