I had a similar problem with 2.3.2-7 and tracked it down to
a recent change in /usr/sbin/locale-gen

The 'unset POSIXLY_CORRECT' statement generates an error if
POSIXLY_CORRECT is not defined and then the script exits
immediately (it exits because set -e is in effect).

The end result is that 'dpkg --configure locales' fails.

Try to edit this script, remove the set -e statement, rerun the configure
part and see how it goes (that did it for me).

The correct fix would probably be to unset the variable only if it's
