"perl: warning: Setting locale failed" error when upgrading Ubuntu

My oldest pending draft, almost 10 years old 😮 Apparently, the solution didn’t really work, but I haven’t had that issue again in ages anyway ^^

If you’re getting something like this while upgrading your Ubuntu:

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
LANGUAGE = “en”,
LC_ALL = (unset),
LANG = “en”
are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale (“C”).

then try the following command:

locale-gen
dpkg-reconfigure locales

Not really working…….
