No user and no root login in X is enabled;

Error: Can't open display: :0

Check /etc/X11/Xwrapper.conf; the line "allowed_users=" is probably set to something other than "console". You can change this file, but it'll likely get overwritten on the next upgrade, so you may want to run "dpkg-reconfigure xerver-common" which will present a question that will set this file.

Of course, if that's not the problem, I'm not sure what the fix is.
