Seems to be fixed silently.

I now get:

$ cp -v .bashrc /tmp/
'.bashrc' -> '/tmp/.bashrc'
$ cp /tmp/does_not_exist .
cp: Aufruf von stat für '/tmp/does_not_exist' nicht möglich: Datei oder 
Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
$ cp
cp: Fehlender Dateioperand
„cp --help“ liefert weitere Informationen.

which is ok.

I'm using ubuntu 16.04, therefore I haven't tested it with 14.04.

  Strange quotation in german messages. i.e. 'cp -v .bashrc /tmp/'
  outputs: ».bashrc“ -> »/tmp/.bashrc“

Status in coreutils package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This is about a strange quotation in some german messages, see:

  $ cp -v .bashrc /tmp/
  ».bashrc“ -> »/tmp/.bashrc“

  $ cp /tmp/does_not_exist .
  cp: der Aufruf von stat für »/tmp/does_not_exist“ ist nicht möglich: Datei 
oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden

  I'm talking about the » and “ characters. They should be „ and “, as
  can be found in the usage message of cp:

  $ cp
  cp: Fehlender Dateioperand
  „cp --help“ liefert weitere Informationen.

  The english messages all use ' for the quotation marks, which is ok:

  $ LANG=C cp -v .bashrc /tmp/
  '.bashrc' -> '/tmp/.bashrc'

  I'd like to sum up the german wikipedia on quotation marks

  * When using a typewriter, both "..." or '...' can be used.
  * In germany and austria, both „...“ and »...« can be used. I'd prefer „...“, 
as the latter is not widely used in germany.
  * In switzerland, liechtenstein and france, «…» is used.

  Note that " (typewriter version) and “ (to be used together with „)
  are different characters.

  Sure, there are many possibilities, but the current messages are

  I'd prefer '...' at least for the output of 'cp -v ...', as this might be 
parsed in some shell scripts. For consistency,
  I would vote for using '...' everywhere.

  Alternatively, using „...“ everywhere would also be a good choice.
