That changes a translated (or, well, translatable) string though :/

Indeed, but it’s a choice between an inaccurate but translated message,
and a correct one in English. Since in both cases a user encountering
such an error would have to ask a technical person (likely the one who
broke the system so that the error appears), I think the latter is
preferable.

Alternatively we can ask for translations on debian-i18n for that
string, it would be easy to integrate them.

Cheers,
