I ran into the same problem myself.   Are you working off a CD or from
files that you have ftp'd recently from ftp.debian.org ?

I recommend that you get the latest tex files from Debian's ftp site and
then make sure that you do *not* install the cfg hyphenation rules when
you install the texlib package.

That's what worked for me.
