Damn my fatty fingers, it was libc6-i686. (Not that it is much newer, it was
in stretch.)

Thanks for pointing it out anyway.

The hp-health package itself is dated 2019 in the repository[*]. However, the
top entry in the changelog is dated Fri, 27 Aug 2010. The third entry there is
of December 2009 and says:

   * Add dependency on lib32gcc1 for amd64 to avoid segfault
     when hpasmcli exits.

That software used to work under Beowulf. I don't know why it was damaged
during the upgrade to Chimaera. I'm trying and reinstall it, because I know of
no other ways to read some hardware-specific values. If 32bit libraries didn't
have incompatible changes, they may still work.

Is there anything I can check before forcing the install?

TIA for any hint
