This is unfortunate. README.fonts existed in old versions of
console-setup and it is simply impossible to update automatically the
comments in the configuration files. The new configuration files say
# Consult the keyboard(5) manual page.
# Consult the console-setup(5) manual page.
So you are advised to check these manual pages instead of README.fonts.

In fact the directory /usr/share/doc/console-setup must be a link to
/usr/share/doc/keyboard-configuration and it shouldn't be empty. Is it
indeed empty? In case it is, I have no idea what might have caused
this, but I doubt it it is something related to console-setup.
