Why does a GET request to retrieve the current locale for a user result in error 500?

From my Connect plugin I call /rest/api/2/mypreferences/locale to retrieve the locale currently set for my user. This results in a error 500 (Internal server error).

This is the corresponding log:

And this is the code:

private static final Logger LOG = LoggerFactory.getLogger(JiraHelper.class);

private static final String JIRA_REST_BASE_PATH = "/rest/api/2/";

private static <T> T getJiraValue(RestTemplate template, String baseUrl, String restPath, Class<T> type) {
String url = baseUrl + JIRA_REST_BASE_PATH + restPath;
LOG.info("GET from URL: {}", url);
ResponseEntity<T> result = template.getForEntity(url, type);
LOG.info("Response status = {}", result.getStatusCode().toString());
return result.getBody();
}

public static Locale getCurrentLocale(RestTemplate template, String baseUrl) {
String jiraLocale = getJiraValue(template, baseUrl, "mypreferences/locale", String.class);
LOG.info("Jira user locale is: {}", jiraLocale);
Locale locale = new Locale(jiraLocale);
return locale;
}

Locale locale = JiraHelper.getCurrentLocale(atlassianHostRestClients.authenticatedAsHostActor(), hostBaseUrl);

If I try the same URL in my browser while being authenticated in another tab, I get the correct locale.

Any ideas what's wrong with the code?
