E udeb-uses-unsupported-compression-for-data-tarball

The data tarball of this udeb package is not compressed in format that udpkg (debian-installer's dpkg equivalent) does not support. Thus the udeb is likely to be uninstallable and could break daily or weekly d-i images.

Currently, udpkg supports .gz and .xz compressed tarballs.

Severity: error

Check: deb-format
