What exactly does this error mean,

/usr/bin/ckbcomp: Can not find file "symbols/en" in any known directory

This is the context,

After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.

I was originally getting this error on a dist-upgrade on a machine with Xorg. I'm writing on the same machine, with I3/Chromium.

However, I can get this error again by running

❯ sudo apt-get --reinstall install linux-image-5.10.0-13-amd64

Which is how I produced the log, I knew from the context it was installing a kernel image.
