I've had this on Raspberry Pi. On the Pi it's a keyboard config issue. So
if the suggestions above don't work you could try mucking around with a
different keyboard config or even better actually identify what you
keyboard is and configure for that. Good luck, these kinds of basic issues
tend to be quite frustrating.
