I can confirm this issue with Kubuntu Gutsy AMD64 in spanish (locale is es-AR), it first appeared when I dist-upgraded.
I solved it downloading the source package (apt-get source tzdata), and then compiling it (cd tzdata-2007f;debuild -us -uc). If you install with dpkg the resulting deb file it works ok.

I can confirm this bug in 32bit upgrading from edgy.

I fix that, you only do that:

Uninstall tzdata, ubuntu-minimal, locale, languages packages, ubuntu-utils..... and others packages that can't upgrade. Then install all the packages that you uninstall before

I do that from synaptic, but in terminal work too I think.....

Good look, Greets

sudo tzselect (change time zone , not Argentina/XXXXX)
sudo dpkg --configure tzdata
sudo tzselect (change tz )

I can confirm this bug too. To fix it, I just had to change my timezone from (America/North_Dakota/Center) to (America/Chicago).

It looks like the second forward slash is not anticipated in the post installation script.

Changed in tzdata:
status: New → Confirmed

I used the timezone fix like Jeff Rasmussen and it worked quite well. When I was finished, I switched it back to my timezone and everything still generally works. Although I have a never error, it doesn't seem to be related.

I tried to do the timezone fix like Jeff and the others, but I can't. I tried with 4 diferent timezones and the problem still there.
I was upgrading from Kubuntu Feisty amd64 to Gutsy. I had to install a previous version wich works.

I uninstalled the current version of tzdata and then installed:
http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/t/tzdata/tzdata_2007h-1_all.deb
Then I reinstalled ubuntu-desktop and ubuntu-minimal.

Thanks, it works. Can somebody correct this bug? I think that it's a really bad one, because you can't upgrade from feisty directly.

Sam here with America/Argentina/Cordoba.
Fix: change to America/Phoenix and reinstall tzdata from Synaptic.

Thanks MatB. Its solved.

@MatB:
It didn't work for me.
My Fix: change your timezone and reinstall locales. Then, reinstall tzdata.

As we say here in Argentina, It seems like Gutsy needs a "Blow furnace" (it needs a little more cooking time)
