Plasma sometimes uses a language that the user has removed and is no longer in the installed language list. (Not fixed by a restart)
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Add a second language (If only one is installed)
2. Log out and log in
3. Remove The second language
4. Log out and log in
Plasma uses a language that has been removed
Plasma uses the default language
KDE Plasma Version: 5.23.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.89.0
Qt Version: 5.15.2
I was unable to reproduce it in KDE Neon, but was able to reproduce it in Arch twice.

Nope, although both of our reports say that the problem is the use of a removed language, I was aware of bug#420268 and emphasised the fact that the language dissapeared from the menu while in bug#420268 the language remains
Also for some reason it only uses the 2nd language after it has been removed. If I add the 2nd language back, all text returns to english.
Which languages are in your language list, and what order are they in?

For me it was:
- American English (default)
And what was your goal? Did you want your System to be in Lithuanian as much as possible, or American English 100% of the time? Or something else?

Yes, American Englis 100% of the time
OK, in that case you are experiencing Bug 192019, and the solution is to remove Lithuanian from the list entirely. The fact that the UI lets you set up an invalid state by putting any non-English language below an English language is a bug that will be fixed soon with an in-progress redesign that merges this page with the Formats page.
