Edit: did some goooooogling but still no result

# dpkg -C
The following packages are only half configured, probably due to problems
configuring them the first time.  The configuration should be retried using
dpkg --configure <package> or the configure menu option in dselect:
 initramfs-tools      generic modular initramfs generator (automation)

The part concerning to dm-verity in /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/live should be as follows:

# dm-verity support
if [ "${DISABLE_DM_VERITY:-}" != "true" ] && [ "${DISABLE_DM_VERITY:-}" != "yes" ]
then
	[ "${QUIET}" ] || echo -n " dm-verity"
	manual_add_modules dm-verity
	# The BusyBox mount does not support dm-verity so we use the util-linux version.
	copy_exec /bin/mount
fi

The problem arises trying to copy the mount binary, which is located at /bin instead of /usr/bin. So, the line:

copy_exec /usr/bin/mount /bin

must be replaced with:

copy_exec /bin/mount

in live-boot-initramfs-tools

thank you, aitor!
editing '/usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/live' solved it.
