arrakis:/# dpkg -l tex-common tetex-base

iF  tetex-base                       3.0-18                         

Given the original bugreport it's no wonder that tetex-base is listed as
"iF", but:

arrakis:/# dpkg -S update-language
dpkg: *update-language* not found.
arrakis:/# dpkg -S bin/update-language
dpkg: *bin/update-language* not found.
arrakis:/# ls -l /usr/sbin/update-*

But on vivaldi, another m68k buildd:
vivaldi:/home/ij# locate update-language

So, there's a broken chroot on arrakis as it seems, but I can't say why
tex-common wasn't installed proberly as a dependency of tetex-base

I would recommend to clean up arrakis' chroot and requeue that package
on arrakis again.
