User:     debian-edu at lists.debian.org
UserTags: debian-edu

Usertags: incorrect-dependency

  error: Unable to migrate to dependency based boot sequencing.
  error: Problems detected: package dhcp3-server left obsolete init.d

  more information about dependency based boot sequencing. To
  reattempt the migration process run 'dpkg-reconfigure sysv-rc'.
