Bug#842324: console-setup: During apt-get dist-upgrade stage, console-setup did not finish cleanly under ja_JP.UTF-8 locale.

Package: console-setup
Version: 1.152
Severity: critical
Tags: d-i l10n
Justification: breaks the whole system

Dear Maintainer,

*** Reporter, please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?

     I ran "apt-get dist-upgrade" to upgrade to testing repository.
     I ran "apt-get dist-upgrade" after "su" ing to the superuser.
     I am afraid that somehow LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 setting seeped into the
     In that environment, during the execution of
     console-setup, "iconv" failed due to illegal or invalid character
     code or something like that. I am afraid that I failed to log the
     operation successfully and so can't recall the exact message, but
     the failure is due to "iconv", this is for sure.
     I have experienced various "iconv" issues before, and
     thus I changed LANG to LANG=C after seeing the failure and
     ran "apt-get install console-setup" again, and this time
it succeeded and so the "apt-get dist-upgrade" as a whole succeeded!

On a different PC, I set LANG=C before running apt-get dist-upgrade, and found that it ran successfully the first time.

    * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
     Simply ran "apt-get dist-upgrade", and found console-setup failed
due to the failure of "iconv" that was invoked during its execution.
     But setting LANG=C before running apt-get was the cure to solve
     the problem.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

     Failure to run console-setup successfully.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
     console-setup to run to completion successfully.
