I just installed a fresh ascii install, ran update-initramfs -u and had
no errors (I did see the same last line that's mentioned). So I tried
apt remover *nonfree, let that run, and tried again and it produces
that set of errors when the nonfree firmware is not there.
So, as you mentioned the errors happened after the upgrade to Beowulf.
I'm going to assume that it was just because firmware-misc-nonfree was
in a bad state after the upgrade and that a reinstall of both firmware-
misc-nonfree and firmware-linux-nonfree would fix the issue there. I
can test that if you'd like, by doing the reinstall and running update-
initramfs -u again.
