update-initramfs Locale Issue


Asked on Ubuntu Forum, but no joy as yet. I hope one of you nice peeps may help...

When I run:
update-initramfs -u
I get the following Warning:
No support for locale: en_GB.utf8

Been trying to sort out my locale as it was set to US.

I have the following set:
en_GB.UTF-8 UTF-8
en_GB.UTF-8 UTF-8
I have also run:
rm -rfv /usr/lib/locale/*
locale-gen --purge
dpkg-reconfigure locales
Both produces:
Generating locales...
	en_GB.UTF-8... done
Generation complete.
Now errors bug me!!

Is this purely cosmetic??
Can it be ignored?
Is it because the utf-8 part is in a different capitalisation to my locale files?
If it needs correcting where/how can I correct it?

I had to manually edit

As I could not find how to set the language to GB... GRUB2 is new to me..

set lang=en_US

set lang=en_GB
Installing the language pack
apt-get install language-pack-en-base
apt-get install language-pack-en
Says they are both up to date..

Any help is appreciated.

I can find lots of references to

update-initramfs No support for locale

Searching Google and forums, but they all point to other issues, and do not address the Locale warning (I guess a lot of people have this warning).
