Thanks for the pointer!   sendmail-base.prerm had the line:

update-inetd --group MAIL --disable smtp,smtps,submission;

and I was getting the error

update-inetd: error: --group is only relevant with --add

This would appear to be a bug[1] in the sendmail package, which, if you
have the time, might be worth reporting[2]. However both sendmail and
update-inetd are orphaned at the moment (no regular maintainers,
although Andreas Beckmann has done a lot of work via the QA team)
