Version: 1.394.3 2020-01-28 13:07:05 UTC

  casper (1.394.3) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Cherrypick from eoan: Add dependency on finalrd for reliable
    live-session shutdown. Casper setup live systems do have layering
    violations (/ actually depends on /cdrom) and it appears that
    (although masked) the system manages to rip it out, resulting in
    filesystem errors preventing completing the shutdown. That's where
    pivot to finalrd comes in, to save the day and blast the running
    system into oblivion and complete the shutdown. LP: #1840122
