[placement][docs][packaging] rpm- and deb- related placement install docs

The Ubuntu package placement-api is valid from Train, earlier the 
package was named
nova-placement-api so the documentation should be correct for the Train 

When thinking about it; there might be duplicates right now and maybe 
the nova-placement-api
hasn't been removed for Train yet.

Best regards
