Regular nightly upgrade brought in 11.3 lsb-release and lsb-base, but didn't get newer sysvinit-utils (as I'm reading that mught have prevented the carnage if it placed the init-functionns to the exact expected path (/lib/lsb) - I'm verifying that now
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
This is a major PITA, I'm still trying to stand that system back up, somehow shoveling the required file, but the pen drive's /dev/sda1 is not created either.
