emacs error: "Symbol's value as variable is void: hostname"

emacs error: "Symbol's value as variable is void: hostname"

After I installed emacs this error occurs every time on startup. It prevents me from installing plugins, e.g. auctex via aptitude. I already tried to install a plugin by hand (rails for ruby), but doesn't work.

"Solved" it by reinstalling Ubuntu. Was less work than expected. (Backupped the home folder, so reinstalling took approximately 4h with making an backup and playing it back.)
