With `glibc-2.35-2`, if `C.UTF-8` is specified in `/etc/locale.gen`, then `locale-gen` command produces the following error:

C.UTF-8...failed to set locale!
[error] LC_MONETARY: value for field `mon_decimal_point' must not be an empty string

It looks like the locale is generated anyway, but also it looks like [1].

It is expected to be fixed by [2].

Please consider backporting.
