I'm running Mint 17 amd64 dutch and i had this warning ..

update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.0.0-12-generic
Warning: No support for locale: nl_NL.UTF-8

issue:
The problem is that /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/root_locale is expecting to see individual locale directories in /usr/lib/locale, but locale-gen is configured to generate an archive file by default.

i fixed it by running :

sudo locale-gen --purge --no-archive

you will get...

Generating locales...
  en_AG.UTF-8... done
  en_AU.UTF-8... done
  en_BW.UTF-8... done
  en_CA.UTF-8... done
  en_DK.UTF-8... done

  en_ZW.UTF-8... done
  nl_AW.UTF-8... done
  nl_BE.UTF-8... done
  nl_NL.UTF-8... done
Generation complete.


After that run...

update-initramfs -u -t

and warning is fixed...

I don't like seeing warnings on commandline output. This took care of it.

Thank You, Verwijs69

In last command "update-initramfs -u -t", include sudo, ie: "sudo update-initramfs -u -t". Don't include quotation marks.

Yes it worked, promoting you... I have watched the error for years now in many machines, now fixing it everywere.

NOTE: sudo update-initramfs -u -t
Because it wont work without sudo

Most users will figure this out, but the update-initramfs is a sudo command as well.
