Public bug reported:

I can't tell if the script - update-boinc-applinks is still
useful/needed.  Per the man page it was written only for Debian BOINC.

AFAICT today it checks for this directory: /usr/share/boinc-apps/info/,
which doesn't exist when boinc is installed, and then exits.

>From what I can see it's the only python use in boinc-client/manager so
by itself is causing it to bring in python2 (which is longer installed
by default in Ubuntu).
