I hope someone can help me fix the following error.

Thank you for your help.
you ubuntu install is'not in UTF-8 mode (unicode).
if you write in a terminal:
env | grep LANG
You should have LANG=en_US.UTF-8 to be able to support unicode encoding. If it's not the case, just write this:
sudo locale-gen en_US.UTF-8 sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales sudo update-locale LANG=en_US.UTF-8
And now logout your session or just restart your server, you will be able to launch OpenERP.
This script solved the problem for me
sudo su postgres
update pg_database set datistemplate=false where datname='template1';
drop database Template1;
create database template1 with owner=postgres encoding='UTF-8'
lc_collate='en_US.utf8' lc_ctype='en_US.utf8' template template0;
update pg_database set datistemplate=true where datname='template1';
Similar issue here and have restarted the server and Odoo but no effect. Still complaining
DataError: encoding "UTF8" does not match locale "en_US"
DETAIL: The chosen LC_CTYPE setting requires encoding "LATIN1".
Note that we are trying install the first database after Odoo install and we would like to select the UK English for it. It anyway complains about "en_US" instead of "en_GB", and the error is the same if we try to install "en_US" instead. Anyhow, when asking with the command "env | grep LANG", the answer is:
The LANG value stays if restarting the server but the LANGUAGE value cuts off and says after that "LANGUAGE=en_US:" instead.

EDITED / SOLUTION:
I got the problem solved by totally removing Odoo installation and postgresql as well.
After that checked with the command "locale" what are the language locales.
They were already ok in this point since I have been trying to get them in order indeed but the solution to get them in order in case needed is this one:
For Ubuntu 14.04 to add these lines to the /etc/bash.bashrc file:
or it can be "en_US.UTF-8" or any other language that is needed as the main language.
After that running the Odoo install with the postgresql database settings, things should go in order and then you will be able to create the first database with the Odoo Database Manager after the fresh install. I hope this helps somebody since this was quite a hurdle to find out what goes wrong with the locales (very difficult to fix afterwards, so faster to install all again after the locales are in order!).
