Bug Description

Installed updates via apt, and it was getting stuck on keyboard-configuration.

I started playing around with its postinst script and realized it was stuck on
plymouth --ping (so I removes that line and had the script assume plymouth was
present as it is). Now I find the same problem on console-setup-linux.

Will fix doing the same thing, but now I'm sure this means that plymought has
really frozen on my system.

I've got the same bug after installing today's 17.10 daily image and trying to update with Software Updater. I added a comment here because I don't understand bug #1705345 (which this bug should be a duplicate of). Sorry for that
