Bug#244300: base-config: Unquoted variable in apt-setup

Package: base-config
Version: 2.18
Severity: minor


The following code snippet around line 326 of /usr/sbin/apt-setup

                   if [ -n $COUNTRY ]; then
                     db_set apt-setup/country $COUNTRY

produces an error like

/usr/sbin/apt-setup: line 326: [: United: binary operator expected

if the COUNTRY variable contains more than one word. It probably needs 
to be quoted to be treated like a single argument in such a case. It 
seems like this problem does not affect the db_set statement, i.e. the
complete name of the country is put into the debconf database.

Best regards,
