perl warnings after upgrade

So, I went ahead an updated a few raspi2 boards that I have. It has been a while since I patched those. The first one, everything went well, but every time I user perl or a perl command is invoke, I get the following message:

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
        LANGUAGE = (unset),
        LC_ALL = (unset),
        LC_COLLATE = "C",
        LANG = "en_US.UTF-8"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
My default LANG is set to en_US.UTF-8. None of the searches I did turned up anything that will fix this. I figured that I must have done a mistake along the way. So, I just finished updating my second raspi2 board, and this one does NOT have the same issue. Needless to say, I'm a bit perplexed. I tried re-installing perl already to no avail. I'm stumped! Any ideas? Thanks!

This happens on the mini root file system, as well. IIRC, it's because a package is missing, rather than a configuration problem.

Compare the installed packages on both machines:
cd /var/log/packages
ls -1 | sort > /tmp/machine1.pkgs
Copy the 1st's output to the 2nd machine, and diff them.
I'm curious as to which package it is. If it makes sense, I'll add it to the mini root.

Oh my goodness, I feel like a total idiot. I was going through the install manually (without using slackpkg) and I considerably missed a large amount of packages on the l/ series. All is good know. Your tip helped me realize what I had done.


locate failed, perl, raspberry
