There is a similar bug report in Ubuntu Launchpad for 16.10 not saving configuration files.

In summary the debian version wasn’t creating the directories:

DIR PERMISSION
/var/lib/hardware 0755
/var/lib/hardware/udi 0755

I tried creating these directories manually after installing hwinfo but the command to dump the database still wouldn’t work for me.

I suggest filing a bug report.
