iso build fail: lang pack apt conflict

Asked by henczati

System: Lubuntu xenial 16.04.1 i386 daily-live (built @ 2016-09-29T16:45) from
Same source iso.
Installed uck 2.4.7-0ubuntu2 from ` xenial/universe i386 Packages`.
/dev/mapper/uck_vg-data is empty 7.3G ext2 on lvm2 logical volume (7.0G free).
sudo mount -o dev,suid,exec /dev/mapper/uck_vg-data /mnt
sudo mkdir /mnt/ucktmp
sudo chown $USER:$USER /mnt/ucktmp/
sudo mount --bind /mnt/ucktmp/ $HOME/tmp
Chose same langs at all lang prompts, chose manual modifications, removing Windows stuff, hybrid (CD/USB) iso.
`en` was set as the default lang.

ISO build fails on lang pack installation.

In $HOME/tmp/build.log :

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 language-pack-touch-en : Conflicts: language-pack-en but 1:16.04+20160627 is to be ins
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
apt-get install language-pack-en language-pack-en-base language-pack-touch-en failed, error=100

Same goes for any other language selected for install, all if multiple selected.

Ubuntu Customization Kit has not been developed for years, and has the note "!!!PROJECT DISCONTINUED!!!" on its Launchpad homepage.

Recent Ubuntu releases differ from previous ones in a manner, that certain steps of UCK now fail.

I can give some advice:
 1. deselect all language packages that contain the string -touch- in their name
 2. modify /usr/lib/uck/customization-profiles/localized_cd/customize_iso
 and change in line ~84 (the longest line in the whole file) the part

... $(zgrep gz ...
... $(zgrep xz ...

and three lines later

tar xfz *.tar.gz ||
tar xfJ *.tar.xz ||

You might read recent questions and bugs related to UCK on Launchpad. These recommendations (and some more) have already been given to other persons with similar problems.

Can you help with this problem?
