Bug Description

i386 dapper, quite clean install with some packages from universe and about three from 3rd party source which is correctly detected and disabled by the update-manager. another machine with anoter amd64 dapper install, no packages outside main and universe.

/var/log/dist-upgrade/main.log gets filled with the following very soon after the Big debugs about packages to remove and install:

(and continuing with the four InstallPrgoress lines until infinity)

"asetusten säätö" just means "configuring"
Currently 19MB log on the other machine and 13MB on the machine. I guess I have to kill the update-manager processes and try something else.

term.log for the i386 machine. Amd64 machine's term.log also stops somewhere, but in a different place. There the last line is "Removing libtasn1-2-dev"

Ends similarly on the amd64 machine. And the locale used on both machines is fi_FI.UTF-8.

It looks like this is locale releated. I have got a similar report ( #68553) from a finish user as well.
