I guess this is because the "apt-install console-setup" is in
kbd-chooser's post-base-installer, at a moment where APT sources are
not available (or configured).

Maybe we could move the installation of console-setup to a
finish-install script as there is nothing to do but install

However, I'm unsure whether an "apt-install" of a package that's not
on the netinst CD would work at the finish-install step.

BTW; it seems that kbd-config post-base-installer script needs some


. /usr/share/debconf/confmodule

# Silently exit if we're using a serial console
db_get debian-installer/serial-console
if [ "$RET" != false ]; then
        exit 0

apt-install console-setup || true
exit 0 # console-setup will handle the rest of it

.../... some other stuff that's never executed.
