Eneedlessly-depends-on-awk

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.234. That is the most recent version we know about.

The package seems to declare a relation on awk. awk is a virtual package, but it is special since it's de facto essential. If you don't need to depend on a specific version of awk (which wouldn't work anyway, as dpkg doesn't support versioned provides), you should remove the dependency on awk.
