There is a bug report on this problem you can subscribe to. The more people that subscribe the greater chances it will be fixed:
The ‘column’ program included in upstream util-linux
is newer than the included in the bsdmainutil package
However, debian/rules from util-linux package states the opposite, and
therefore Ubuntu now is using ‘column’ from bsdmainutils instead of
the util-linux one.
