Bug Description

I already installed Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS and set location on Iran during installation.
After finishing installation successfully, I open the calendar by clicking at the top of the screen (where the clock is shown), I see the calendar with Azerbaijani names for month and weekdays.

Such as "آقوست" for August and "جومعه آخشامی" for Thursday.

But it should show in Iranian names such as "اوت" for August and "پنجشنبه" for Thursday.

Description: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS
Release: 20.04

affects: apport → gnome-calendar (Ubuntu)

`fa_IR.UTF-8` local is not installed by default. That's a bug!

I think ubiquity should generate the locale when Iran is selected.

Does it work once the locale is installed? what language did you select during the installation?

I decided to English during the installation.

I think I was connected to the Internet but I'm not sure.

Yes. It worked when I installed the locale.

This one also affects me. As you can see in the attached picture during installation internet connection stablished and `apt` connetcted to the ` focal main amd64`.

I select English for setup language but after that choose Tehran/IRAN as location.

I think locale not correctly set when select Tehran/IRAN in ubiquity.

This is what return from locale command.

$ locale


As @Danial Behzadi said, It should be `fa_IR UTF-8` as IRAN official language is Farsi/Persian not Azeri.

the environment is at fault there, it's not a calendar bug, could be one in ubiquity though
