Hi Ludo, is it best to install glibc-locales or glibc-utf8-locales in
the operating system configuration as Arun suggests?

I hit the same issue doing a reconfigure on Guix System after not having
these locales either in user, root or system profiles (though I'm unsure
whether root and system are the same thing).

I had been ignoring the recent hints "Consider installing the
`glibc-utf8-locales' or `glibc-locales'..." because it wasn't clear why
this was useful to do.

Should these locales just be installed by default on Guix System? Or
maybe this is one of those issues that I hit because I hadn't upgraded
within a certain window of changes.

(For other non Guix experts like myself, I fixed my system by `guix
pull` as root, followed by `guix package --install glibc-utf8-locales
glibc-locales`, restarted guix daemon with `herd stop guix-daemon`,
checked to see if it was really stopped with `ps aux | grep
guix-daemon`, it wasn't so used `kill [the-process-id]`, started with
`herd start guix-daemon` and then the reconfigure worked.)
