Make sure locales is installed, check /etc/default/locale and see what's
going on in there and see if LANGUAGE and LANG are set, make
sure /var/lib/locales/supported.d/local has a language.  Once all that
is fixed, run 'dpkg-reconfigure locales' and you should be good to go.
Aptitude was not in 10.04 either by default and you should opt to use
apt and synaptic now.
