Interesting, trying ES did not work either, although it is installed
(as is the default English tutorial):
hardy2 at hardy2-laptop:~$ vimtutor es
hardy2 at hardy2-laptop:~$ vim /usr/share/vim/vim71/tutor/tutor
tutor tutor.gr.cp737 tutor.ko.euc tutor.sk
tutor.ca tutor.gr.utf-8 tutor.ko.utf-8 tutor.sk.cp1250
tutor.cs tutor.hu tutor.no tutor.sk.utf-8
tutor.cs.cp1250 tutor.hu.utf-8 tutor.pl tutor.sv
tutor.cs.utf-8 tutor.info tutor.pl.cp1250 tutor.tr.iso9
tutor.de tutor.it tutor.pl.utf-8 tutor.tr.utf-8
tutor.es tutor.ja.euc tutor.ru tutor.vim
tutor.fr tutor.ja.sjis tutor.ru.cp1251 tutor.zh.big5
tutor.gr tutor.ja.utf-8 tutor.ru.utf-8 tutor.zh.euc
hardy2 at hardy2-laptop:~$ vimtutor /usr/share/vim/vim71/tutor/tutor
<<DID NOT WORK>>
hardy2 at hardy2-laptop:~$ vim /usr/share/vim/vim71/tutor/tutor <<DID WORK>>

can open the tutorial with VIM now that I know where it is, so no real
