I suggest you report a bug

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #2

localedef should be provided by libc-bin

Try

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libc-bin

and then again

sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

Try

sudo apt-get install --reinstall locales

and then again

sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

and please copy/paste all output as response into this question document (including the output of the apt-get command).

done by reinstalling locales using Muon Package Manager.
