Package: samba-common-bin
Version: 2:4.0.12+dfsg-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,
     Dpkg gave the above warning while updating/upgrading samba. This
is the whole output on aptitude.

Preparing to replace samba-common-bin 2:4.0.11+dfsg-1 (using
.../samba-common-bin_2%3a4.0.12+dfsg-1_amd64.deb) ...
update-alternatives: error: unknown argument `/usr/bin/nmblookup.samba3'
dpkg: warning: subprocess old pre-removal script returned error exit status 2
dpkg: trying script from the new package instead ...
dpkg: ... it looks like that went OK
Unpacking replacement samba-common-bin ...

I do see that it seems to have gone o.k. but don't have any idea why
that warning came.

The changelog has only this to say :-

[ Jelmer Vernooij ]
  * Add 26_heimdal_compat: Fix compatibility with newer versions of Heimdal.

Apart from localization fixes and new upstream release notice.

But still some brief idea as to what and why it happened as it
happened while upgrading would be nice.
