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

Fix:

Run locale:

#locale
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
LANG=en_IN
LANGUAGE=
LC_CTYPE="en_IN"
LC_NUMERIC="en_IN"
LC_TIME="en_IN"
LC_COLLATE="en_IN"
LC_MONETARY="en_IN"
LC_MESSAGES="en_IN"
LC_PAPER="en_IN"
LC_NAME="en_IN"
LC_ADDRESS="en_IN"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_IN"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_IN"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_IN"
LC_ALL=

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:

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

So, it seems en_IN is not installed. Install it:

#locale-gen en_IN
Generating locales...
  en_IN.UTF-8... done
Generation complete.
[[email protected]] ~/Android-Kitchen #dpkg-reconfigure locales
Generating locales...
  en_IN.UTF-8... up-to-date
Generation complete.

Package `locales' is not installed and no info is available.

First install the package as suggested:

apt-get install locales

Then, reconfigure and generate locales:

dpkg-reconfigure locales

A menu will popup where you can select to generate all locales, and set default locale. I set en_GB as default
