Is the exact install-info invocation shown?

I expect that the underlying problem is that Debian install-info is
different from GNU (texinfo) install-info.  Perhaps you are getting GNU
i-i, say from TeX Live, and the package is certainly expecting Debian.
If so, there's an easy solution: (re)move the TL install-info.
