localepurge fails after /var/cache files cleared
/var/cache/localepurge should contain items that can be cleared when
space is low-
items that should remain intact between runs should be in /var/lib/localepurge.
This causes important commands like...
# apt-get install <pkg>
... to choke as well.
One workaround is to run...
# dpkg-reconfigure localepurge
