Changing / Fixing the System Locale

If you are "apt-get upgrade" etc. and you get something similar to this error:

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
        LANGUAGE = "en_US:en_GB:en",
        LC_ALL = (unset),
        LANG = "en"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory

Here is what you need to do:

apt-get remove locales
apt-get install locales
dpkg-reconfigure locales

Hope it works out ok. More info at:
