Description Jason W. Bacon freebsd_committer 2021-01-18 16:40:18 UTC
[14/59] Installing polkit-0.118...
===> Creating groups.
Creating group 'polkitd' with gid '565'.
===> Creating users
Creating user 'polkitd' with uid '565'.
pw: user 'polkitd' disappeared during update
pkg: PRE-INSTALL script failed

Quick-fix is run "pwd_mkdb /etc/master.passwd" and rerun the install.

Not really sure if this is a polkit issue or a ports issue.
