Hi, Spike:

The Ubuntu unbound package is closely based on the Debian version. In
this case, you're affected by bug #777193:

unbound-checkconf is only called in certain cases by the init script.
You might be able to work around the issue by altering some of the
package settings. Maybe try setting RESOLVCONF=false in
/etc/default/unbound, if you don't need the resolvconf integration.
