Probably because your lo device isn't configured. Check if you have

  auto lo
  iface lo inet loopback

in your /etc/network/interfaces. If not, add it, then run "ifup
lo". interfaces(5) and ifup(1) have the details, see also
/usr/share/doc/ifupdown/

Also make sure that you have a line "127.0.0.1    localhost" in /etc/hosts
