intel-microcode error


I get this error since updating my Debian video server to Jessie. Is this anything to be concerned about? How can I get rid of it?

Code:
Processing triggers for initramfs-tools (0.120) ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.2.0-4-amd64
E: intel-microcode: unsupported kernel version!

Code:
# apt-get remove intel-microcode
Perhaps?

It's not *needed* -- it's just an update for the code running the CPU.

My Debian sid system has this configuration file:
Code:
# /etc/modprobe.d/intel-microcode-blacklist.conf
# The microcode module attempts to apply a microcode update when
# it autoloads.  This is not always safe, so we block it by default.
blacklist microcode
So the updates aren't applied anyway.
