[Stretch, 9.0] Installation failed to install net-tools (from scratch installation)




On Sunday, April 2, I installed from scatch on all new hardware.
That installation failed to install
   net-tools

The whole installation "seemed" to go well,
and on reboot the desktop interface worked well.

While the installation properly used some networking during installation,
afterwords I couldn't access anything beyond my computer, including 
   apt-get  install  dctrl-tools
So, while debugging, the following commands were missing
   route
   ifconfig


During Debian installation, I  hand configured partitions on a flashdrive and a hard-drive through the Debian installation prompts as
   first drive:  /
                   EFI
   second drive: /home
                        /usr/local
                        /var
                        /tmp
                        swap
The first drive is actually a Kungaru 32 GB USB 3.0 flashdrive with read/write switch 
(I have yet to turn the Kunguru flashdrive switch to read-only).
The second drive is a 1 TB internal SATA hard-drive.


During Debian installation, I chose 
   ssh server
   web server
   one other (probably email server)
All my other Debian installation interactions were normal.

To resolve this problem, I'll download "net-tools" on another computer, 
then on my new computer install 
   dpkg  -i  net-tools

I send this email because this is a Debian "stretch" installation problem 
that Debian ought to fix.


Note: I am not subscribed to this email list [but this email is germane].
I will follow responses as they occur in the Debian email list archives.
