The Portuguese babel packages is babel-portuges. I would expect it to
be babel-portuguese instead. Either way I have a file with the
following rows.

> \documentclass[portuguese,a4paper]{europasscv}
> \usepackage[portuguese]{babel}

When I issue pdflatex cv_pt.tex, I read the following warning and it
seems the hyphenation is not working.

I tried with \usepackage[portuges]{babel} also.

In /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/generic/babel-
portuges/portuges.ldf file there is this rows and other instances of
"portuges" and also portuguese.

Can you shed some light on this? Is this a bug?
