@Multichill poked me about it.

The job is made to use Debian unstable:

$ echo "deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free" \
      | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list > /dev/null

Which is well, unstable :]

The package locales fails completely:

Preparing to replace locales 2.13+git20120306-3 (using .../locales_2.24-2_all.deb) ...

Errors were encountered while processing:

No clue why update-locale would be in two packages. Looks like a chicken and egg problem as something is being transitioned in the Debian project. The source package is glibc: https://packages.qa.debian.org/g/glibc.html

I highly recommend to NOT use unstable for anything. Ideally you should aim at jessie which is the stable version, and eventually testing (which breaks often though).

If jessie does not work for some reaso, that is surely fixable :]
