vn: warning: cannot set LC_CTYPE locale svn: warning: environment variable LANG is en_US.UTF-8 svn: warning: please check that your locale name is correct

This is one of the weird errors I encountered today where, suddenly I could not update my server with my recent commits and the error read as

 svn: warning: cannot set LC_CTYPE locale
 svn: warning: environment variable LANG is en_US.UTF-8
 svn: warning: please check that your locale name is correct

I found the solution on http://shep-dev.com/?p=16 which helped me get rid of the problem. Apparently the problem is that the LANG specified isn’t installed. (Though I have no clue how it got uninstalled, it worked till yesterday evening.)

apt-get install language-pack-en-base

This pretty much gets you back on track and install the en language pack. So thanks to Chris Shepherd of Shep Ajile Development LLC im moving on to the next issue.
