Description roucaries 2020-02-15 20:33:54 UTC
The creation of database fail if locale en_US.UTF8 is not installed systemwise (by pulling
locale-all package for instance).

Indeed akonadi create database by using --locale en_US.UTF8
(see https://github.com/KDE/akonadi/blob/8aca730125ad247014868ba6e4cc530f4209619a/src/server/storage/dbconfigpostgresql.cpp#L297)

correct flags will be: -E UTF8 --no-locale   
that does not need to install a locale systemwise and is safe

NB: they are two place where you pass the flags also here:

May be refactor ?
