Not particularly unexpected. (This also obviates any need to 'dlocate
/sbin/init', since it confirms which init system you're running.)

Install it ('apt-get install dlocate'), then try
'dlocate scripts/local-block'. If that fails, try running 'updatedb' to
initialize the search database, then run the command again.
