I guess it depends on how much debugging output you want. Since all of these calls go through one function (gettext_printf), you could modify that function to print or log the translated string that gets passed to printf and the corresponding untranslated string.

It would probably be simpler to just log everything from every call to that function and sort it out later.

Something like

gettext_printf () {
  gettext_printf_format="$1"
  translated_printf_format="$(gettext "$gettext_printf_format")"
  shift
LOG $gettext_printf_format and $translated_printf_format HERE
  printf "$translated_printf_format" "$@"
}

Then you correlate these messages to the error you're seeing.

I'm trying to debug it. Any information on how is welcome.

It's not clear why, but it appears that printf is being handed a format string that looks like `%$' and is printing an error because it doesn't understand it. The builtin printf does not display unrecognized format characters; they are errors.

I forgot to add English of the error message:
#: builtins/printf.def:676
#, c-format
msgid "`%c': invalid format character"
msgstr "`%c': biçim karakteri geçersiz"

I was trying to see why os-prober from GRUB does not work and I noticed the below error:


with LANG=tr_TR.UTF-8
/etc/grub.d# pkgdatadir=/usr/share/grub ./30_os-prober
