Yellow Question Marks When Precompiling

Why there are a lot of yellow question marks show up during precompiling when I download new packages? I can using new packages normally. Perhaps someone can point me how to solve it?

Your terminal emulator’s font might be missing the unicode half black circles that are used by pkg.jl here. The characters should be:

julia> collect('\u25D0':'\u25D3')
4-element Vector{Char}:
 '◐': Unicode U+25D0 (category So: Symbol, other)
 'β—‘': Unicode U+25D1 (category So: Symbol, other)
 'β—’': Unicode U+25D2 (category So: Symbol, other)
 'β—“': Unicode U+25D3 (category So: Symbol, other)

Please use code block instead of screenshots.
Kindly read this post for asking questions the julia way.
Thanks.

I see this as an appropriate use case of screenshot.

This also happens here. Maybe this issue is more common than expected?

Although it has the βŒ… character … :thinking:

See https://github.com/JuliaLang/Pkg.jl/pull/3903 which adds documentation about the various symbols.
