Description

This service is only useful to display the "Please remove the live-medium, close the tray (if any) and press ENTER to continue:" prompt on shutdown, that has not been displayed in Tails for a while (not sure if that's on purpose). The Buster upgrade of this code seems to break stuff, e.g. #16312 and I sometimes see that prompt, seemingly randomly, which is confusing. I bet our own code that deals with shutdown does not play well with live-tools.service.

Disable live-tools.service (Closes: #16324)

This service is only useful to display the "Please remove the live-medium, close
the tray (if any) and press ENTER to continue:" prompt on shutdown, that we
don't want to display in Tails: shutdown and memory erasure should not require
a confirmation once the user has triggered it. In Stretch this code was broken
and we were relying on this. But the Buster upgrade of this code has repaired
it, so I sometimes see that prompt. This might also explain some issues such
as #16312.
