Bug#679971: initramfs-tools: dpkg: error processing initramfs-tools (--configure)
Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.106
Severity: grave


I have the problem with upgrading packages in my system:

$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
Setting up initramfs-tools (0.106) ...
update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...

dpkg: error processing initramfs-tools (--configure):

Errors were encountered while processing:

$ uname -a
Linux Tehnick 3.2.0-3-rt-686-pae #1 SMP PREEMPT RT Thu Jun 28 10:28:23 UTC 2012 i686 GNU/Linux
