  less (551-1ubuntu0.1) focal; urgency=medium

  * On upgrade from packages that shipped less in both /bin and /usr/bin,
    call update-alternatives in preinst, such that after unpacking,
    /usr/bin/pager remains operational. This should resolve dpkg failing
    to invoke pager by dpkg. LP: #1874953
