Solved: perl: warning: Setting locale failed.

When I’m trying to connect to my Linux box from macOS Terminal I got the following error:

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
    LANGUAGE = (unset),
    LC_ALL = (unset),
    LANG = "en_US.UTF-8"
are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

Solution:

Open a new Terminal on macOS and edit the file ~/.bash_profile

Add the following lines:

export LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
