I read

   $ man ftp

and it recommend read info:

  $ info ftp

but this command shown previous man page. Emacs show:

   No such node or anchor: ftp FTP client

Problems come from incorrect '/usr/share/info/dir' file menu entry.
If I change:

* ftp: (inetutils)ftp                      FTP client.


* ftp: (inetutils)ftp invocation.          FTP client.

- all OK. Same true for many other utilities from 'inetutils' package,

   inetd rexec rexecd rlogin rlogind rsh rshd syslogd talk talkd telnet 
telnetd tftp tftpd

Please fix script for adding menu entry to 'dir' file
for 'inetutils' package.
