Hi,

Today I updated a server and ran into a problem.

$ man shutdown
man: can't execute iconv: No such file or directory
man: command exited with status 127: iconv -c -f UTF-8 -t
ISO-8859-1//TRANSLIT | (cd /home/Administrator && LESS=-ix8RmPm Manual
page shutdown(8) ?ltline %lt?L/%L.:byte %bB?s/%s..?e (END):?pB %pB\%..
(press h for help or q to quit)$PM Manual page shutdown(8) ?ltline
%lt?L/%L.:byte %bB?s/%s..?e (END):?pB %pB\%.. (press h for help or q
to quit)$ MAN_PN=shutdown(8) less -s)

After manually installing "libiconv" (libiconv2 was already installed)
the problem disappeared, so apparently there is a dependency missing
for man-db.

Regards,
Frank
