Hi,
 
The error is caused due to bug in OpenEmbedded meta layer. Due to some reason ISO8859-1 needs libc.so in addition to libc.so.6.
To get around this problem you need to create a softlink to libc.so using the command ln -s
For example: ln -s libc.so.6 libc.so
Restart the application and you will see the error is gone.
