Subject: Reportbug refuses to work with non utf8 charset
Date: Wed, 25 May 2022 14:18:53 +0100
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: reportbug
Version: 11.5.0devuan1
Severity: normal

I have locales set to de_DE (note, without charset so this ist
latin1/iso-8859-1).

When I want to use reportbug, I get the following error and reportbug
fails:
   UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xe4 in position 3: invalid continuation byte

   The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

   SystemError: <class 'UnicodeDecodeError'> returned a result with an exception set

   The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

   SystemError: <class 'UnicodeDecodeError'> returned a result with an exception set

   The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

   SystemError: <class 'UnicodeDecodeError'> returned a result with an exception set

   The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

   The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

   Traceback (most recent call last):

       self._cache = apt_pkg.Cache(progress)
   SystemError: <class 'apt_pkg.Cache'> returned a result with an exception set

When I unset all locale settings, reportbug works somehow but wrongly
detect utf-8 charset. (Unset locales are ASCII only! No UTF-8 allowed!)
