Public bug reported:

Description:    Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
Release:        18.04

uname -a: Linux dtsmith-vallum 4.15.0-65-generic #74-Ubuntu SMP Tue Sep

All updates available to date have been applied.

Command is "sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-0:armhf"

Debian team supposed to fix this bug with package version 2.54.2-5 see

I am doing cross-compile work with the following compilers

arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc-8 from package gcc-8-arm-linux-gnueabihf

The schemas from the native gcc-7 package are in

"sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev:armhf" has the same error.

Work-around is to install libglib2.0-dev for the host. The schema files
are in /usr/share/glib-2.0. I have cross-compiled syslog-ng as armhf and
it works.

Here is the output of the apt install command:
