It’s best to install none of these.  :-)

On Guix System, the mechanism is more fine-grained: the admin declares
precisely the locales they want in the ‘locale’ and ‘locale-definitions’
fields, and only those get installed.  See

This is probably due to the switch to glibc 2.29: your system now
provides locales for glibc 2.29 only, but if you have binaries linked
against 2.28, they need 2.28 locale data.

To do that, add ‘glibc-2.28’ to the ‘locale-libcs’ field:

(Normally ‘guix pull --news’ mentioned it when you upgraded.)

Perhaps on we should just add the current and previous glibc to
‘locale-libcs’ by default.
