When users visit the My Site root page, they are greeted with the "We're Almost Ready!" message. Their My Site page is never created.

When I check a users Personal Site Instantiation State, it shows enqueued. When I try to create a user's My Site via PowerShell using the "CreatePersonalSite()" method, I get:


User's can create site collections within the My Site web application by visiting the site creation page (http://[server]/_layouts/15/scsignup.aspx).

I setup My Sites to allow any language that the user selects. Self Site creation was working in the past. Seems like it stopped working after patching/updates a couple months ago.

    The "ErrorLanguageNotInstalled" is a member of SP.UserProfiles.PersonalSiteInstantiationState enumeration ( msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/…). You need to provide the detail error message when running the commands to create My Site. Also, check ULS log for more error message about this issue. Dec 26, 2017 at 2:24
  • The exception was: Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.PersonalSiteCreateConfigurationException: A failure was encountered while attempting to create the site; the desired language is not installed on this server. at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfile.<>c__DisplayClass2.<CreateSite>b__0()
