That's a different issue that prevents using debconf to select the
locales to build. It seems you are able to to that, even if they do not
seem to be regenerated.

That's a temporary problem only happening during the upgrade. Your
problem seems to be permanent.

There are two things to look at. First we need understand if the locale
is correctly generated. Then we also need to understand if the
environment variables are correctly set.

Could you please send:

* The content of "/etc/default/locale"

* The output of the "locales" command

* The content of the "/usr/lib/locale/" directory.

As an alternative, does installing locales-all, which contains already
all locales already compiled does fix your problem?
