From your logs, seems your cinnamon session is running an unsupported locale setting

Jan 04 11:22:25 localhost.localdomain gnome-terminal-server[19981]: Non UTF-8 locale (ISO-8859-1) is not supported!


Please provide the output of
Code: Select all
localectl
- in the meantime you can run any other terminal, e.g. xterm
