During PBA update installation on the step of post-configuration ( run) script fails with the following error:

Configuration of pba failed.


There is a blank line in PBA locale file.


If exact file name is not clear from the error, it can be found using the following command:

grep -cvP '\S' /usr/local/bm/conf/locale/locale.*


[root@pba ~]# grep -cvP '\S' /usr/local/bm/conf/locale/locale.*

To resolve the issue it is needed to edit affected file (/usr/local/bm/conf/locale/locale.en.custom in above example) and remove the blank line
