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
(https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/utils/util-linux/util-linux.git/tree/text-utils/column.c)
is newer than the included in the bsdmainutil package
(https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/bsdmainutils/bsdmainutils.git/tree/usr.bin/column/column.c).
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.
