I recently changed the locale on our 5.8 system to:
LANG=el_GR.ISO8859-7
LC_ALL=el_GR.ISO8857-7
after a previous question here. Now, after giving some commands (e.g. man) I get the "couldn't set locale correctly" message. In fact, I get it several times. Should I worry?

This look like you have not installed all the required software packages for you locale.
Check with
  locale -a
if the one you need is present.

I set the particular locale after checking with locale -a. It exists alright.

Getting the message indicates you don't have the message catalogs for the setting you entered. Could you try a different one and see what happens?

The complete set of locale varaibles is as follows (see also in /etc/default/init):
LC_COLLATE=C
LC_CTYPE=C
LC_MESSAGES=C
LC_MONETARY=C
LC_NUMERIC=C
LC_TIME=C

There were only TZ and cMASK in the init file. I updated it as you suggested, but it didn't change a thing. I still get the same message. Just once, I even got it after a 'clear' command!
