Missing locales


Every time i log on i get an error message that says "Could not find language no_NO.UTF-8 using System default". When i type locale -a (which should list all the languages) i only get this:
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_COLLATE to default locale: No such file or directory
If i run apt-get install locales i get this:
root@BJORN:/home/burk # apt-get install locales
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  locales: Depends: glibc-2.3.2.ds1-20ubuntu14
E: Broken packages
What should i do??

I think i have found the problem. The locale package needs glibc-2.3.2.dsl1-20.... but i have the newest version, the glibc-2.3.2.dsl1-24..... Do you think it would work to just download the locales and put them in /usr/lib/locales ?? If yes where could i get them??
