It looks to me that your upgrade went fine. sane-utils depends on
update-inetd for some reason, perhaps in case you are using inetd to
share a local scanner via your network? Like you, I do not use inetd, do
not have inetutils-inetd installed, and do not have /etc/inetd.conf . I
saw the same message and took it as a harmless warning.

Kind regards,

Hi, Ben.
Thanks for the reply. No, I am not using inetd to 
share a local scanner via network. So, since I am not conversant with inetd, I will just have to use my system for a while, to see if there is something there that just doesn't seem to work, and if so, just take it from there.
