    solved with

    sudo apt-get -f install

    Oddly enough the site: search with google and duckduckgo does’t work here, but the forum’s search does work

    locale.Error: unsupported locale setting

    If that is all that is stopping it. Take my advice with a grain of salt as I am more daring than others.

    sudo apt-get -f install

    Above I have done numerous times before for dpkg error code 1 messages.

    I had this error in the new 17.4 with the sid repos too.
    apt install -f
    helps only temporarily until the next dist-upgrade

    So I uninstalled the apulse version of mx
    apt purge apulse
    and then installed apulse in the newer version of debian
    apt install apulse
