The breakage here came from bad dependancies on the Debian wireguard
packages which we backported to these series.  They incorrectly (for
Ubuntu) depend primarily on wireguard-modules which triggers an actual
dependancy on a kernel package; a severe no-no for exactly the issue
hit here.  It should likely have been caught in review but was not.

New packages are in the review queue and expected in -proposed today
across the board.  They will be released as soon as is practicle.
