update−modules − obsolete command
update−modules is an obsolete command. In its current form it will execute /sbin/update−modules.modutils (the old update−modules program provided by the modutils package) if it exists and do nothing else.
Note that the file /etc/modprobe.conf is not the exact equivalent of /etc/modules.conf. It is not required for module-init-tools and is not generated any more. In fact, most people should not create that file since /etc/modprobe.d/* would be ignored in this case but Debian packages store their additional configuration files in /etc/modprobe.d/.
This program should be removed after modutils will have been removed from the distribution and no package will try to use it anymore.
