1-Have you ever manually added content to, or removed content from, /usr/ (other
than /usr/local/), including with a backup/restore program (not package any

2-Is your / filesystem type BTRFS?

3-How many installed kernels and initrds do you have?

4-Do you have many optional font packages installed?

5-Asking on debian-user list may draw a more helpful response.

If answer to 1 is yes, suspect possible broken hard links.

Even though we both use 18G / filesystems, mine has only 444M in /usr/lib/ and
1.3G in /usr/share/. I have 5 installed kernels, and EXT4 /.
