Package: insserv
Version: 1.18.0-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Got the following somewhat scary message when updating -

Setting up udev (240-6) ...
update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
insserv: FATAL: service mountkernfs has to be enabled to use service udev

maybe it just needs mountkernfs to be added in the interactive bit at
the bottom or somewhere else ?

$ cat /etc/insserv.conf
# All local filesystems are mounted (done during boot phase)
$local_fs	+mountall +mountall-bootclean +mountoverflowtmp +umountfs

# Low level networking (ethernet card)
$network	+networking +ifupdown

# Named is operational
$named		+named +dnsmasq +lwresd +bind9 +unbound $network

# All remote filesystems are mounted (note in some cases /usr may
# be remote. Most applications that care will probably require
# both $local_fs and $remote_fs)
$remote_fs	$local_fs +mountnfs +mountnfs-bootclean +umountnfs +sendsigs

# System logger is operational
$syslog		+rsyslog +sysklogd +syslog-ng +dsyslog +inetutils-syslogd

# The system time has been set correctly

# Services which need to be interactive
