Reproducer is:

$ echo -en 'DE\nBavaria\nFoo\nRed Hat\nTest Dpt.\\n\n' > infile
$ echo -n 'testme\ntestme\n' | openssl req -passout stdin -x509 -newkey rsa:4096 -keyout key.pem -out cert.pem -days 365 -batch < infile
$ echo -en 'changeme\nchangeme\nyes' | keytool -J-Duser.language=fr -importcert -alias mYdomain -file cert.pem -keystore mYkeystore2
Entrez le mot de passe du fichier de clés :  Ressaisissez le nouveau mot de passe : erreur keytool : java.util.IllegalFormatConversionException: d != java.lang.String
$ echo -en 'changeme\nchangeme\nyes' | keytool -J-Duser.language=es -importcert -alias mYdomain -file cert.pem -keystore mYkeystore2
Introduzca la contraseña del almacén de claves:  Volver a escribir la contraseña nueva: error de herramienta de claves: java.util.IllegalFormatConversionException: d != java.lang.String

Last step works with English:

$ echo -en 'changeme\nchangeme\nyes' | keytool -J-Duser.language=en -importcert -alias mYdomain -file cert.pem -keystore mYkeystore2
Enter keystore password:  Re-enter new password: Owner: O=Default Company Ltd, L=Default City, C=XX
