Oracle can't find language file

What is "SP1 file <lang> .msb not found"? I get that when I open SQL*Plus.

Oracle is trying to find a "language file" and it can't find it. Typically, the language file is in the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/mesg directory. The language file's filename will be of the form "oraXX.msg" where XX is a code denoting the language. For instance, since I am in the United States, this code is 'us' in my installations.

When an error message is generated, Oracle looks here for the text of the message number. If this file is missing or can't be accessed, you will receive an error as you indicated. This could be a configuration issue. Make sure that your ORACLE_HOME environment variable is set correctly. Or, the installation of the Oracle software could be incorrect. Reinstalling can fix this.
