Locale issues 2020.11

Hello,
I am unsure if this is the correct place where to post my issue.
I am having problem running whatever kind of commands on qiime2-2020.11.
I’ve tryed already to re-download anaconda, python3.7 and qiime2, but independently by the command I run I have something similar to that:

qiime feature-table tabulate-seqs
–i-data rep-seqs_281.qza
–o-visualization rep-seqs_281.qzv

QIIME is caching your current deployment for improved performance. This may take a few moments and should only happen once per deployment.

What am I doing wrong?
Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi @Alessandro_Lazzaro,

I would try running the command, locale on your terminal to check where your computer thinks you are. I had a similar issue last year, but you may need to explore setting your locale and location variables.

Best,
Justine
