This is because we dropped some old cruft to handle migrations from console-setup << 1.55 or so; but it turns out to still be necessary.

Ubiquity doesn't set seen for the debconf questions about model and layout, which would later get noticed and the priority for those questions dropped to medium in the same code as used for preseeding. Unfortunately, since ubiquity doesn't do that (still needs fixing too, added a task for it), we need to look for XKBLAYOUT in /etc/default/keyboard for the upgrade cases and drop priority if it's there.

This bug was fixed in the package console-setup - 1.108ubuntu5

---------------
console-setup (1.108ubuntu5) vivid; urgency=medium

  * Reinstate checking for XKBLAYOUT being in the config file: this handles
    the cases where installs done with ubiquity don't have their debconf seen
    flag set for model/layout questions. If layout is already configure, lower
    the corresponding question's priority to medium so we don't ask it again.

There is nothing to do in ubiquity for this; marking the ubiquity tasks as Invalid.
