rkhunter 1.2.9 is not supported anymore. Contact Debian's package
maintainer if you have problems with this old version.

hashupd was a script for rkhunter 1.2.9. The rkhunter 1.2.9 files are
no longer available on the project page, so that's probably why
hashupd is also no longer there. The FAQ should be updated, yes.

There are only two (sourceforge.net/project/rkhunter is the file
download section of rkhunter.sourceforge.net) and I believe the
original rkhunter site on rootkit.nl was never taken down by the
original author, but they have also not replied to messages about this
issue. There is nobody on this list that fix this AFAIK.
