It looks like the icon name in the file
/usr/share/applications/io.elementary.files.desktop has been translated in some locales for some reason. If you are in a locale where the translation has changed the icon name (at present [ca] and [it]) then it will cause this problem.

I had the same problem in Catalan and this fixed it. Hope it helps!
