Welcome aboard, @JordanS!
I’m struggling with the busy formatting. In future, the </> (preformatted text) style may help clean things up.

It looks like the environment variables that describe locale on your system might not be playing nice with a utility we use called click.

You can use the following commands to check the values of key variables:

echo $LC_ALL
echo $LANG

and these snippets might help you get things patched up if the variables return no values, or similar.

Good luck!
CK
