Try to run (as root) "fc-cache -fs" followed by "update-pangox-aliases".
Do you get error messages? Does this improve the situation?

If the above does not help, post the output of these three commands:

ls -l /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejavu/DejaVuSans.ttf

dpkg -l lib{pango,cairo}\* | awk '/^[^D|+]/{print $1,$2,$3}'

awk '/^Name:.*pango/,/^$/' /var/cache/debconf/config.dat
