Mine too, but this is all I can get out of that command, after space bar 
selecting, then tabing to ok twice.:

rock64@rock64:~$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
[sudo] password for rock64:
locales-all installed, skipping locales generation

Regardless of what I select.
Sigh. I wish I had never heard of this rock64 board. And if I could get 
my money back, I'd mail them back in a heartbeat. As is, the best I can 
is claim that with the level of support I've seen since delivery of 
these rock64's over 6 months ago, its a POS, save your money. The latest 
upgrade has rendered it useless to do any actual work.

But I'll keep looking, there has to be something out there that doesn't 
throwaway 10% of the local keyboard and mouse events like the @$%* pi's 
do. Once you get your code into storage, it runs well considering its 
speed, but serious editing sessions are much easier to do externally, 
then send it back to the pi useing sshfs.
