I have a NAS with a custom OpenMediaVault image that was developed by a Russian, so the translation packages were originally in Russian. However, I deleted "ru" from sources.list, so that it draws from the main Debian repository. I've also changed the system locale, removing Russian from the list, and keeping only the English locale.
However, when I run apt-get update, it feeds me both the English and Russian translations.
I don't know if it's actually downloading Russian translations, but because it's a NAS and I'm trying to keep OS files to a minimum, I don't want any extra and unnecessary files.
Is there a way to exclude these; and if so, how?
[Edit: I've gone to /etc to nano locale.gen, and the Russian locale is properly commented out, while only the English locale is called upon. Continuing to poke around...]
