Create an upstream bug report now, but then move this bug.

Ubuntu is soo much fun. When install_initd crashes, a GUI dialog pops up and
asks if I want to report this problem. I click yes, and is informed about the
fact that this problem has already been reported, and that I should see the
details in the web browser. Which then opens up with:

"Lost something? This page does not exist"

Then, I take the bug number from the URL and manually enter into
https://launchpad.net. Clicks on the first hit, then I get:

Timeout error

Sorry, something just went wrong in Launchpad.

We’ve recorded what happened, and we’ll fix it as soon as possible. Apologies
for the inconvenience.

Trying again in a couple of minutes might work.

Another interesting thing: On 14.04, /var/lib/lsb/depends exists but is not
owned by any package:

dpkg-query -S /var/lib/lsb/depends 
dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern /var/lib/lsb/depends

It's also empty. This seems to be an output directory, owned by lsb-core:

dpkg-query -S /var/lib/lsb
lsb-core: /var/lib/lsb

In any case, this seems to be an workaround:

mkdir -p /var/lib/lsb

Verified working fine now.

Even though this bug is fixed, it might not be enough to install services on
for instance Ubuntu 16.04. See bug 5946.
