"Verde Denim"
Default SOLUTION: 8.04 LTS hangs on locale

This is from Launchpad... and it worked for me, too.

run the dist-upgrade as recommended. If the process hangs at
generating locales, taking more than 20min for the first one and still
not continuing:

chmod 644 /usr/bin/localedef

killall locale-gen

now the process should continue, but throwing a bunch of errors
(simply ignore those). If it still not continues, check whether
locale-gen has really been killed (ps aux|grep locale-gen) and repeat
"killall locale-gen" until it's gone.

When update-manager is done, don't forget to

chmod 755 /usr/bin/localedef

For me, update-manager seemed to be able to finally solve the issue,
there have been no more steps required after the above. But just to be

Reboot to the normal grub option offered (i.e. the latest kernel
just installed), but do not yet login graphically. Instead, press
Ctrl-Alt-F1 to get a text console. Login there, and run

apt-get dist-upgrade

dpkg --configure -a

As just stated, in my case both were done within a second, simply
stating there was nothing to do. Now you can logout here (type "exit"
or press Ctrl-D), return to the graphical console (Alt-F7), and login.
You are done.
