Warning : setting locale failed

Since several days i see this warning . I’m a total full newb with endeavouros , but already tried sudo locolae-gen which seems to work but then after i still get the same message , any help will be greatle appreciated

Seems that suffix .UTF-8 is missing from the en_US strings.
Maybe your /etc/locale.gen is not correct? Can you show it here?

Tip: use a line of three backticks
```
before and after the file contents.

# Configuration file for locale-gen
#
# lists of locales that are to be generated by the locale-gen command.
#
# Each line is of the form:
#
#     <locale> <charset>
#
#  where <locale> is one of the locales given in /usr/share/i18n/locales
#  and <charset> is one of the character sets listed in /usr/share/i18n/charmaps
#
#  The locale-gen command will generate all the locales,
#  placing them in /usr/lib/locale.
#
#  A list of supported locales is given in /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED
#  and is included in this file. Uncomment the needed locales below.

@theduc Just out of curiosity, what does your /etc/locale.conf file look like?
