Changes (by dsd):

  * next_action:  diagnose => package


 Python no longer likes being run with an empty environment and was
 producing this trace during boot:
  * olpc-configure: Rebuilding the library index.
  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/lib/python2.7/site.py", line 563, in <module>

      raise IOError(msg)
  IOError: invalid Python installation: unable to open
 //include/python2.7/pyconfig-32.h (No such file or directory)
 (the 2nd time this has bitten us)

 olpc-library-update was being run with an empty environment due to #6767 -
 "env -" clears the environment, but I don't think that part of the change
 was intentional.

 Fixed by not resetting the environment. olpc-utils
