getButterfly Logo getButterfly code wrangling since 2005

WordPress - Hand Drawn LogoWhat is going on? Starting from today – some reported this yesterday – my blog displays this error:

RSS Error: The data could not be converted to UTF-8. You MUST have either the iconv or mbstring extension installed. Upgrading to PHP 5.x (which includes iconv) is highly recommended.

in the Dashboard section, where Other WordPress News should be.

Discussions were started here and here with no solution so far.

I’m still puzzled as there was no recent update to break WordPress, and the error message is totally wrong, I have both iconv and mbstring extensions installed, and I have the latest PHP version active.
