Please see:


The solution, as described in this section, is to have both (say)
locales for glibc 2.27 and locales for glibc 2.28, which you can specify
in ‘locale-libcs’.

Another option is what ‘guix’ commands print every time you run them: to
install the corresponding ‘glibc-utf8-locales’ package.

Now I perfectly understands that this annoys everyone of us when that
happens, and many people don’t seem to find the info.  So I’m open to
suggestions on how to improve this!
