After the core-updates merge today, I did the following, and it gave anerror message (I tried a couple of times, with the same result):

The command did then complete successfully, I assume building nss-certslocally instead, though I can't see any further references to it in theoutput.
I'm currently trying the same thing on my other computer.

This package contains non-ASCII UTF-8-encoded file names.
I suppose the error here is because you’re daemon is missing its UTF-8locales.
This could be because you upgraded the daemon but did not upgrade the‘glibc-utf8-locales’ or ‘glibc-locales’ you installed as root, no?
HTH,Ludo’.

It's possible - I rarely do anything with the root profile, and wasn'teven aware that I had to keep it up to date. Should I have to `guixpull` and `guix upgrade` it regularly, as well as my user profile?

I install glibc-locales as a system-wide package in my operating-systemconfiguration. Perhaps that's what Ludo meant to say.

I probably should have mentioned in my initial report that this is Guixrunning on top of a foreign distro (Arch).

In practice you rarely need to update it, but sometimes it’s nice to do.

‘guix pull’ alone updates the daemon and provides it with‘glibc-utf8-locales’, which may or may not be enough for your purposes.
Could you run:
cat /proc/PID/environ | xargs -0 echo
where PID is the PID of ‘guix-daemon’ as shown by ‘systemctl status’?
TIA,Ludo’.

Hi Ludo, Josh,
If you want something that looks like env output, this works for me:(also easier reading)
cat /proc/PID/environ | sed -E 's:\x00:\n:g'
You knew that, I know, but some onlookers might not :)BTW, if this is considered ill-mannered besserwisser kibitzing,or OT-noise-injection, please advise, et je serais sage ;-)--Regards,Bengt Richter

Hi Ludo, is it best to install glibc-locales or glibc-utf8-locales inthe operating system configuration as Arun suggests?
I hit the same issue doing a reconfigure on Guix System after not havingthese locales either in user, root or system profiles (though I'm unsurewhether 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 whythis was useful to do.
Should these locales just be installed by default on Guix System? Ormaybe this is one of those issues that I hit because I hadn't upgradedwithin a certain window of changes.
(For other non Guix experts like myself, I fixed my system by `guixpull` as root, followed by `guix package --install glibc-utf8-localesglibc-locales`, restarted guix daemon with `herd stop guix-daemon`,checked to see if it was really stopped with `ps aux | grepguix-daemon`, it wasn't so used `kill [the-process-id]`, started with`herd start guix-daemon` and then the reconfigure worked.)
Cheers,Ben

Does/var/guix/profiles/per-user/root/guix-profile/lib/locale/*/en_GB.UTF-8exists?
If you installed ‘glibc-utf8-locales’ in root’s profile, it certainlydoesn’t:
Toggle snippet (5 lines)$ ls $(guix build glibc-utf8-locales)/lib/locale/2.29de_DE.utf8 el_GR.utf8 en_US.utf8 fr_FR.utf8 tr_TR.utf8de_DE.UTF-8 el_GR.UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8 fr_FR.UTF-8 tr_TR.UTF-8
So I think you have to install the ‘glibc-locales’ package in root’sprofile:
guix install glibc-locales
Let me know if it helps!

It’s best to install none of these. :-)
On Guix System, the mechanism is more fine-grained: the admin declaresprecisely the locales they want in the ‘locale’ and ‘locale-definitions’fields, and only those get installed. Seehttps://guix.gnu.org/manual/devel/en/html_node/Locales.html.
Toggle quote (4 lines)> 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).
This is probably due to the switch to glibc 2.29: your system nowprovides locales for glibc 2.29 only, but if you have binaries linkedagainst 2.28, they need 2.28 locale data.
To do that, add ‘glibc-2.28’ to the ‘locale-libcs’ field:https://guix.gnu.org/manual/devel/en/html_node/Locales.html#Locale-Data-Compatibility-Considerations.
(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.
HTH!
Ludo’.

Note that this tells you that this ‘guix’ command is probably linkedagainst 2.28; this is fixed by making sure you’re running the latest‘guix’ produced by ‘guix pull’, for instance with:
~root/.config/guix/current/bin/guix install glibc-locales
(IOW, it’s not the same problem as substitution problem we wereinitially discussing.)
