I cannot run a "pg_upgradecluster" because there are problems with pg_dumpall. I have set the encoding to UTF8 everywhere on the server but pg_dumpall always uses

"SET client_encoding = 'LATIN1';"

. Where does this "LATIN1" come from?

postgres=# show server_encoding; show client_encoding;


server_encoding
-----------------
 UTF8
(1 row)

 client_encoding
-----------------
 UTF8
(1 row)

postgres@ubunt:~$ locale
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LANGUAGE=
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=

postgres@ubuntu:~$ env
SHELL=/bin/bash
TERM=xterm
USER=postgres
MAIL=/var/mail/postgres
PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games:/snap/bin
PWD=/var/lib/postgresql

XDG_DATA_DIRS=/usr/local/share:/usr/share:/var/lib/snapd/desktop
_=/usr/bin/env

postgres@ubuntu:~$ cat /etc/default/locale
#  File generated by update-locale
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
#LANGUAGE="en_US:en"

Because of the wrong encoding I get errors:

pg_dump: Dumping the contents of table "TBLDATEN" failed: PQgetResult() failed. pg_dump: Error message from server: ERROR: character with byte sequence 0xe2 0x80 0xa6 in encoding "UTF8" has no equivalent in encoding "LATIN1"

I have the same problem with pg_dump but then I can use

pg_dump -E UTF8

to set the correct encoding.


postgres@recworus157:~$ psql -l | grep LATIN
postgres@recworus157:~$ psql -l

Set the environment variable PGCLIENTENCODING to UTF8, then the dump will be created in UTF-8.
