Thanks for your updated translation, and nice to see it remove so many
fuzzy strings.  I will upload this shortly :-)

Some of the changes just insert a period at the end of error messages:

Is it common in your locale to have periods there?

In english locale many programs intentionally do not have those, and
this is generally the case in aptitude.  This is a quasi-standard, and
recommended by gnu coding standards.

I will apply your changes as they are, I am just curious about this.
