As I told you here:
http://sparkylinux.org/forum/index.php/topic,3158.msg6618.html#msg6618
reinstall or remove and install live scripts packages:
live-boot
live-config

If any problem with that, download them from Debian's repo and install manually:
https://packages.debian.org/stretch/all/live-boot/download
https://packages.debian.org/stretch/all/live-config/download

nothing can be installed since /lib/live is gone!
that is the elephant in the room.

once an element is no longer found
initramfs
can not be be generated.

This is a serious issue.

As a friend of this distro Issues like this need to be taken seriously!

Galen, you have two live-scripts packages broken only.
Download them as I said before from:
https://packages.debian.org/stretch/all/live-boot/download
https://packages.debian.org/stretch/all/live-config/download
and install it using dpkg:
sudo dpkg -i live-boot live-config
The operation will overwrite 2 broken packages via the new ones.
Then refresh package list, if still any problem show me the output.

sudo dpkg -i live-boot live-config
dpkg: error processing archive live-boot (--install):

dpkg: error processing archive live-config (--install):

You have to:
1. Download the 2 deb files: live-boot and live-config
2. Enter to the download directory. If your download directory is /home/galen/Download, do:
cd /home/galen/Download
If the download directory is different, use the right patch.
3. When you will be in the download directory and the command:
ls
will show that the 2 debs are inside, then install them:
sudo dpkg -i live-boot live-config
