Thanks for the report.

I'm cloning this bug to libc-client2002edebian not for the missing
translation (which is always a possibility, you'd need to talk to the
Finnish l10n team to get that resolved), but because it's inappropriate for
this debconf prompt to be shown to users on new installs because it's of no

It arguably shouldn't be a debconf question at all (NEWS.Debian exists for
informing users about important changes, and debconf shouldn't be used to
second-guess apt), but that's more of a style question that reasonable
people seem to disagree on.

I'll leave the rest of your install report for someone else to analyze.
