Hi, seeing similar errors, it seems a mistake not to open the translations-file. As the translation is completely gone (which is usually half the start of the release) the problem is solved (though not definitive, because this possibility should be envisaged). Now I do not use amd64 (because i386 work is excellent), I did a test installation just so I can not say that this is so. Regards.
