[Bug 1008502] Re: a11y installation crash

I believe this was unrelated to a11y and was actually python 2/3 issue.
This code has changed and there is no longer a call to encode.

elif message.status_code != Soup.KnownStatusCode.OK:
 # Log but otherwise ignore failures.
                'Geoname lookup for "%s" failed: %d %s' %
                (text, message.status_code, message.reason_phrase))

So I imagine this is resolved but could you please test it again? Thanks
in advance!
