It may be easiest to start with a fresh copy of Raspbian 2017-07-05 and https://etcher.io to write it to your SDCard.

Will try to load, but I am on 4G, too slow. I will try a "cyber café" next time I come to town down from my mountain.

I also used raspi-config to change the keyboard layout and it appeared that nothing happens. I found out, that for some reason, it can be slow. If that happens, don't abort it, just wait about a minute, and the keyboard menu will appear eventually.

Hi,
I have the same problem as described in this post.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration does not act, same as changing keyboard layout in raspi-config.

In raspi-config -> menu 4 Localisation options
Choice 3 Change keyboard layout is followed by the message : Reloading keymap. This may take a short while
No options presented.

Problem is that fi mc does not have lines but strange ascii signs instead and pivpn wireguard cannot display a proper qr code.
Which app needs to be installed from the repository to change keyboard settings?
Who knows knows

You really do not, and it would have been better to start a new thread either way.

raspi-config/dpkg-reconfigure is for setting the system layout for the locally connected USB or Bluetooth keyboard. If you are running a GUI, the GUI configuration may override the system layout. If you are using remote access, the system layout is usually irrelevant. If you are using remote GUI access, it may depend on your exact method.

dpkg-reconfigure will skip the questions if it thinks you do not have a keyboard. If you want to change the system layout anyway, the best bet is to edit the file /etc/default/keyboard.

Problem displaying ASCII-like art is not related to keyboard setting, but they may both be related to remote access methods.
