Description

pkg info ## fails with exception
pkg: 'ascii' codec can't encode character '\u2212' in position 28: ordinal not in range(128)

from file in: /var/pkg/publisher/openindiana.org/pkg/
x11%2Fdiagnostic%2Fxdpyinfo/1.3.2%2C5.11-2020.0.1.1%3A20200330T164044Z

less decodes this as:
set name=pkg.summary value="xdpyinfo <E2><88><92> display information utility for X"

Ascii set uses: dash==hyphen==minus
Some word processors may change -- to unicode hyphen "smart character"
Perhaps this is what happened here?

When have you updated your OI installion last? We had this kind of problem in the past but it has been fixed with a pkg update.
pkg info userland-incorporation
should give you the information. In my environment I cannot reproduce your problem.
