    package_manager: don't race on a file when installing complementary

  the file isn't closed before oe-pkgdata-util uses it and this
  temporary file might look empty to oe-pkgdata-util, because it
  wasn't flushed yet. Which resulted in almost empty debugfs tarballs
  and no locale packages in regular rootfs.
