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

Given the original bugreport it's no wonder that tetex-base is listed as
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-*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 23627 Feb 18 21:48 /usr/sbin/update-alternatives

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.
