  Xenial minimal install: "W: plymouth: The plugin label.so is missing,
  the selected theme might not work as expected."

Status in plymouth package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in plymouth source package in Xenial:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  [SRU Justification]
  All users of ubuntu-text-based plymouth themes get a spurious warning when generating initramfs.  This warning is trivially fixable.

  [Regression potential]
  Only the regression potential of a new binary build.  The only change to the code is to bypass this warning message for the 'ubuntu-text' plugin.

  [Test case]
  1. Install the plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text package.
  2. Uninstall/deconfigure all graphical themes (e.g.: apt remove plymouth-theme-ubuntu)
  3. Run update-initramfs -u
  4. Confirm that a warning message is shown about label.so being missing.
  5. Install plymouth from -proposed.
  6. Run update-initramfs -u
  7. Confirm that no warning message is shown.
  8. Boot and confirm that the text theme is shown correctly.

  I installed a minimal Xenial system. Whenever the initramfs is regenerated, I see

      W: plymouth: The plugin label.so is missing, the selected theme might not work as expected.
      W: plymouth: You might want to install the plymouth-themes and plymouth-label package to fix this.

  The following plymouth packages are installed:

      # dpkg -l | grep plymouth
      ii  libplymouth4:amd64                 0.9.2-3ubuntu13                 amd64        graphical boot animation and logger - shared libraries
      ii  plymouth                           0.9.2-3ubuntu13                 amd64        boot animation, logger and I/O multiplexer
      ii  plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text         0.9.2-3ubuntu13                 amd64        boot animation, logger and I/O multiplexer - ubuntu text theme

  A minimal install of Ubuntu should pull in the appropriate packages so
  that Plymouth doesn't complain. (As it is, I don't see much of a
  splash screen on startup.)
