I have a fresh ubuntu 12.04 installation. When i connect to my remote server i got errors like this:
~$ ssh example.com sudo aptitude upgrade ... Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/apt-listchanges", line 33, in <module> from ALChacks import * File "/usr/share/apt-listchanges/ALChacks.py", line 32, in <module> sys.stderr.write(_("Can't set locale; make sure $LC_* and $LANG are correct!\n")) NameError: name '_' is not defined perl: warning: Setting locale failed. perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings: LANGUAGE = (unset), LC_ALL = (unset), LC_TIME = "de_DE.UTF-8", LC_MONETARY = "de_DE.UTF-8", LC_ADDRESS = "de_DE.UTF-8", LC_TELEPHONE = "de_DE.UTF-8", LC_NAME = "de_DE.UTF-8", LC_MEASUREMENT = "de_DE.UTF-8", LC_IDENTIFICATION = "de_DE.UTF-8", LC_NUMERIC = "de_DE.UTF-8", LC_PAPER = "de_DE.UTF-8", LANG = "en_US.UTF-8" are supported and installed on your system. perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C"). locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory No packages will be installed, upgraded, or removed. 0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

I don't have this problem when i connect from an older ubuntu installation.
This is output from my ubuntu 12.04 installation, LANG and LANGUAGE are set
$ locale LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 LANGUAGE=de_DE:en_GB:en LC_CTYPE="de_DE.UTF-8" LC_NUMERIC=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_TIME=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_COLLATE="de_DE.UTF-8" LC_MONETARY=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_MESSAGES="de_DE.UTF-8" LC_PAPER=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_NAME=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_ADDRESS=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_TELEPHONE=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_MEASUREMENT=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_IDENTIFICATION=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_ALL=
Does anybody know what has changed in ubuntu to get this error message on remote servers?
