Droplet Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Error on installing postgresql:
perl: warning: Setting locale failed. perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings: LANGUAGE = (unset), LC_ALL = (unset), LC_PAPER = "en_US.UTF-8", LC_ADDRESS = "en_US.UTF-8", LC_MONETARY = "en_US.UTF-8", LC_NUMERIC = "en_US.UTF-8", LC_TELEPHONE = "en_US.UTF-8", LC_IDENTIFICATION = "en_US.UTF-8", LC_MEASUREMENT = "en_US.UTF-8", LC_TIME = "en_US.UTF-8", LC_NAME = "en_US.UTF-8", LANG = "en_US.UTF-8" are supported and installed on your system.
With this error postgresql cant start:
Setting up postgresql-9.3 (9.3.4-1) ... Error: The locale requested by the environment is invalid. Error: could not create default cluster. Please create it manually with pg_createcluster 9.3 main --start or a similar command (see 'man pg_createcluster'). update-alternatives: using /usr/share/postgresql/9.3/man/man1/postmaster.1.gz to provide /usr/share/man/man1/postmaster.1.gz (postmaster.1.gz) in auto mode * No PostgreSQL clusters exist; see "man pg_createcluster"
I’ve tried various methods presented by google, none solved my problem:
apt-get install --reinstall locales && sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales dpkg-reconfigure locales locale-gen en_US.UTF-8 locale-gen --no-purge --lang en_US.UTF-8
