This could be due to not running cryptsetup as root, which I'm assuming
you're doing, not having certain kernel modules loaded (aes, dm_mod, and
dm-crypt), or not having the right version of libdevmapper.

Let's start with the simplest solution and try to load the right
modules.  This seems to have solved it for many people with the same

modprobe aes dm-crypt dm_mod

Run it as root, and hopefully the problem's solved.
