Can you unset all the Chinese locale related environments? It seems
that you still have Chinese messages. From some ptrace I got, it seems
the problem is gettext related. So ...

Because console-tools is screwed by dpkg and console-tools is a
required package for a debian system (It is a package belong to
'base'). So apt-get insist you have to install it.

This problem bite me too a few days ago. Just make sure you have
no Chinese related locale set and apt-get install console-tools again.
