Base-files has been updated to version 4.2-4.  This is a bugfix release.

4.2-4 (bugfix release)
    * etc/postinstall/base-files-mketc.sh: Windows only uses 8 characters
      for files in the WINETC directory.  Check if the symlink target
      exists and remove the symlink if not (to fix "protocols" where
      "protocol" should be used).  Truncate the target file names to eight
      characters for new symlinks.  Reported by Walter L., see
    * etc/defaults/etc/profile: Remove test for invalid user or group
      accounts and the instructions on how to create passwd and group file
