Sounds like a regression bug to me

I am new to Linux, Does regression error mean problem occured becuse of updating to Lucid, and is there anything I can do to restore man pages in english?

maybe try doing

man -h ()

where instead of () you put your page to be manned. i.e iwconfig,less...ectt.ect

maybe that'll work for now.
