Hi,
Just upgraded a box from potato to woody and I ran out of disk space and then started to have this problem when ever perl gets called such as installing something. I have not rebooted.

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
	LANGUAGE = (unset),
	LC_ALL = (unset),
	LC_CTYPE = "",
	LANG = "english"

		 ^^^^^^^^^
That can't work since "english" isn't a valid value for LANG


     are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

I tried the suggestion from a thread in April with no avail.

apt-get install localeconf
dpkg-reconfigure locales
Generating locales...
  en_US.ISO-8859-1... done
  en_US.UTF-8... done

And left the language as "C"


Edit your /etc/environment and set LANG to "en_US" or to "C" (C works
for me).
Then log out and log back in and you should be fine.
Alternatively you can do an "export LANG=en_US" in the console to fix
the problem in the console you are in.

I checked this file and it has LANG=C

Eric
