In January I wrote myself a reminder blog entry for configuring keyboard to German.
Doing the same thing again today on the latest Raspbian image (2016-05-27-raspbian-jessie.img) after a
sudo apt-get update,
sudo apt-get upgrade and
sudo reboot gives
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration update-rc.d: warning: start and stop actions are no longer supported; falling back to defaults update-rc.d: warning: start and stop actions are no longer supported; falling back to defaults
The tool does not start after that output. Those warnings is all I get.
I am doing this via
ssh, not from a local terminal.
My version is
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ uname -a Linux raspberrypi 4.4.13-v7+ #894 SMP Mon Jun 13 13:13:27 BST 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux pi@raspberrypi:~ $ cat /etc/os-release PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie)" NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux" VERSION_ID="8" VERSION="8 (jessie)" ID=raspbian ID_LIKE=debian HOME_URL="http://www.raspbian.org/" SUPPORT_URL="http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianForums" BUG_REPORT_URL="http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianBugs" pi@raspberrypi:~ $ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available.

Is keyboard configuration broken?
I have tried:
- Doing the same on Pi 1B before updating and upgrading results in the same issue.
- Configuring the keyboard with
sudo raspi-config, then choosing 5) Internationalisation Options and I3) Change Keyboard Layout. This seems to start above program, at least I see warnings for a short time, then
raspi-configrestarts at the main menu.
sudo apt-get dist-upgradegave 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. After that, the situation is still the same

This may take a short while
setxkbmapdoes not work on SSH (needs X-Window?)
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo setxkbmap de Cannot open display "default display"
I can edit the file
/etc/default/keyboardbut the main reason I wanted to run the keyboard configuration utility is to find out what exactly I have to put there. My final goal is to white a shell script that automatically does this for me.
I have cross-checked my download. The checksum is fine:
