If there is some connection between the original subject line of your
message ("Re: How to Fix ACPI Error : Namespace lookup failure") and
the question that you ask here, I am afraid I am not enough of a
wizard to figure it out.

Anyway, if I were you, this is how I would try to change the default
locale on my system:

As root I would do

 # dpkg-reconfigure locales

I would expect this to

 1. allow me to interactively select locales I want generated, and then

 2. let me select one of the generated locales to be the default locale.

I hope this is helpful.
