python manage.py dumpdata Unable to serialize database

I am trying to run the command
python manage.py dumpdata > data.json

However, I receive such a traceback:

CommandError: Unable to serialize database: 'charmap' codec can't encode characters in position 1-4: character maps to <undefined>
Exception ignored in: <generator object cursor_iter at 0x0000020E11353820>
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:UsersIlliaDesktopMyDjangoStuffgreatkartvenvlibsite-packagesdjangodbmodelssqlcompiler.py", line 1625, in cursor_iter
    cursor.close()
sqlite3.ProgrammingError: Cannot operate on a closed database.


How to solve this issue?


Solution

Running set PYTHONIOENCODING=utf-8 before python manage.py dumpdata > data.json has solved the issue.
