Continued from part 2.

Shadow-4.1.4.2
Installation fails as indicated in the hint because of the international man pages. I decided to install them. After the installation failure: Change the foreign language man page directories to install groups as the root user, from /usr/share/man:

find /usr/share/man -type d -exec chgrp install '{}' \;
