If I press M-x, instead of the minibuffer taking focus, emacs produces a beep.
I can't invoke any command except for those which a key binding exists.
The key bindings which like M-a, M-e produce a beep also.

What does C-h k <your-M-x> report?

A-x is undefined

KeyPress event, serial 28, synthetic NO, window 0x800001,
    root 0x3a, subw 0x0, time 6331689, (166,-16), root:(172,11),
    state 0x0, keycode 64 (keysym 0xffe9, Alt_L), same_screen YES,

You're sure your Alt isn't mapped to A-<whatever> and ESC to
M-<whatever>?  You're running Debian, and at least on mine, they are
mapped like this.

Yes the mapping is what you describe. Esc+x works like M-x.
How could I change this?
