E maintainer-script-does-not-check-for-existence-of-updatemenus

The maintainer script calls the update-menus command without checking for existence first. (The menu package which provides the command is not marked as "essential" package.)

For example, use the following code in your maintainer script:

if which update-menus > /dev/null; then update-menus ; fi

Severity: error

Check: menus
