It seems that debian-multimedia acroread packaging is rather broken; the
acroread-en script is provided by
acroread-debian-files package which has a random 0.version and is not bound to a particular
acroread version, but hardcodes this dependency on a particular
acroread-data package version.
Christopher Marillat explained to me that acroread in testing has been removed due to CVE issues. If only the implicit dependency of
acroread-debian-files would be hardcoded in the packaging system, things wouldn’t break when such things happen.
