'Sans' is a generic font name, just like 'serif' and 'monospace'.
It is an alias of some existing sans font, e.g. Deja Vu Sans.
As far as I can see, this is done in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf
("Accept deprecated 'sans' alias, replacing it with 'sans-serif'")
and /etc/fonts/conf.avail/40-generic.conf, replacing sans-serif with
some sans-serif font that exists on your system.

Mysterious. Some permission problem perhaps.
