I found a system's /etc/lsb-release has been modified and I want to replace it to the version in base-files package.

However I can't apt-get purge base-files because it contains crucial system files and I don't want to remove all its dependencies and install them back. And I'm too lazy to grab the deb, extract it, and copy lsb-release to /etc

Is there a way to do this properly with a (probably single) command?
