Yes, the package, "menu," isn't installed on your system.

You need to install the package, "menu," with the command:
<sudo apt-get install menu>
Or use the package manager of your choice. I like synaptic.
The package, menu, doesn't re-install menus, only keeps menus in order.
I run it after each update or package installation.

Hopefully, ideally, running <update-menus> will fix this.

Here's what the package description says:
generates programs menu for all menu-aware applications
Debian menu keeps transparently the menus in the different
window-managers in sync with the list of installed programs.
Debian menu relies on a list of menu entries provided by programs
and a list of menu-methods provided by window-managers and other
Menu provides system-level and user-level configuration and overrides
for both menu entries and menu-methods.
Sounds good, doesn't it ?
After installing the package, "menu," you may run the command:
to update your user menus or:
in order to update your menus system-wide. (thank you, Peter!) It is
a utility to keep the various menu items properly in order. It only
takes a few seconds to install and a few seconds to run it from a
