[texdoc] Bug report

Hello Tiago,

as Norbert responded on GitHub (https://github.com/TeX-Live/texdoc/issues/63),
this seems to be an issue for Ubuntu packaging, not for Texdoc.

I do not know the details for the apt packages of texlive-*, but I wonder
that the post-installation processes, such as running mktexlsr, for
texlive-latex-extra(-doc) might not be properly done while texlive-extra-utils
does well.

Please consider contacting Ubuntu maintainers.
