Where, exactly, are you seeing this error message?

Code:
Restarting authentication failure monitor: fail2ban failed! debian
Is that the complete message?

Also, if you temporarily rename /etc/fail2ban/jail.local, e.g.

Code:
# mv /etc/fail2ban/jail.local /etc/fail2ban/jail.local.bak
and restart fail2ban with

Code:
# service fail2ban restart
does the error still occur?
