I had this exact problem upgrading the most vanilla machine on my
network. Straight install with nothing changed. Upgraded from 7.10 to
8.04.1 and it hung on the locales.
My solution was to simply kill the hung process, carful not to kill the
upgrade utility. Let the machine reboot, then run dpkg --configure -a
after its done rebooting. It will finish configuring the packages then.
