The version you had earlier also comes with English. Run tuxcut as it was(in Arabic), select your interface. So far everything would still be in Arabic. Now you should see a menu bar on top. It's above everything and has four drop down buttons aligned towards the right. Click on the third one from the right. It'll drop down to give you exactly one expandable button. Clicking on that will give you two options, one of which will already be checked. That one's for Arabic. And you guessed it, the other one's for English. Changes won't take effect till you restart tuxcut.

As for the errors. Using dpkg will result in the errors you are getting. Uninstall tuxcut using sudo apt-get remove tuxcut. Now re-install using dpkg the same way you were trying. It should work.
