This is most probably a bug of debian-installer, dpkg or apt. Could you
please answer the few questions below to help us understand the problem:
- What's the output of "dpkg -l libc6-i686"?
- Do you have a /usr/share/doc/libc6-i686 directory? If yes what is the
first entry at the top of /usr/share/doc/libc6-i686/changelog.Debian.gz?
- Do you have any mentions of libc6-i686 in /var/log/dpkg.log.*?
- When did you installed your system and which install CD did you use?
