    Hello,
    There are several ways to get this job done.
    For me simplest trick is to edit the respective configuration file.

    Try to edit the following file in pico editor [vim is not installed by default]

    /etc/default/console-setup
    find the following value in the file as following.

    XKBLAYOUT="gb"
    You can set/edit the value of country code/standard layout

    save the above file and check if the key strokes are responding to correct hit.
