So I use English (Canada) but added English (US) as my main language & Fdroid fixed itself after I refreshed the repos.
But doing so messed up my phone (needed to reboot), and it might affect units (lbs/miles instead of it/km; havnt verified).
I will switch it back to just English (Canada) and see if the issue comes back.
Okay the issue came back. I rebooted, removed English(US) and made English(Canada) the primary language, and the Fdroid language issue comes back after a repository update (I added FDroid archive repo to force update to work). The Chinese text is everywhere again & and AntennaPod app info looks as it did in the original picture.
So it looks like Fdroid isn’t reading Android’s Primary language setting properly, at least when it is set to a non-US English dialect, and a work around (that causes other phone issues) is to use English(US) as your cell’s primary language… which I really rather not have to use.
