  Errors were encountered while processing:

Launching it manually get the same error as well:

  % invoke-rc.d nfs-common start
  Starting NFS common utilities: statd failed!
  invoke-rc.d: initscript nfs-common, action "start" failed.

The whole execution log of

  sudo bash -x /etc/init.d/nfs-common start

is posted at http://pastebin.com/SQefWNQs

On the surface, the reason of failure is the failure of

  statd+ start-stop-daemon --start --oknodo --quiet --exec /sbin/rpc.statd 
 + RET=1

The symptom is confirmed as well by Dr. Ed Morbius, Chief Scientist,
Krell Power Systems Unlimited. See 

The real reason is that the post install process of nfs-common
didn't deal with portmap:

 $ grep portmap /etc/runlevel.conf || echo not found
 not found

I.e., the portmap is not enabled by default as the daemon. 

Starting it manually solve the problem:

  % rpcinfo -p
  rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Remote system error - Connection refused

  % /etc/init.d/portmap start
  Starting portmap daemon....

  % rpcinfo -p
     program vers proto   port
      100000    2   tcp    111  portmapper
      100000    2   udp    111  portmapper

  % /etc/init.d/nfs-common start
  Starting NFS common utilities: statd.
