You mean that you see that as the very first message after grub? That is, you see this message before you are asked for the passphrase? If yes, it is normal. For some reason debian looks for the volume groups even before unlocking the LUKS partition and of course fails. After entering the passphrase, it looks again. I have once entered a bug report for this, as well as for the red letter fail when such a machine shuts down because it cannot close the logical volume which contains the root filesystem. Both were answered that's the way its supposed to work...
