update-modules - obsolete command
update-modules is an obsolete command. In its current form it will exe
cute /sbin/update-modules.modutils (the old update-modules program pro
vided by the modutils package) if it exists and do nothing else.
Note that the file /etc/modprobe.conf is not the exact equivalent of
/etc/modules.conf. It is not required for module-init-tools and is not
generated any more. In fact, most people should not create that file
since /etc/modprobe.d/* would be ignored in this case but Debian pack
ages store their additional configuration files in /etc/modprobe.d/.
depmod(1) modprobe(8) modprobe.conf(5)
This program should be removed after modutils will have been removed
from the distribution and no package will try to use it anymore.
