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.

It's probably bug #232921, fixed in base r368713
Comment 4 John Hein 2021-08-01 14:22:06 UTC
No feedback for months, and a likely culprit was described (and fixed since the bug was reported)... this should probably be closed OBE.

Hmm, didn't see any update notifications for this PR until now.  Indeed I have not seen this issue recently, so it seems to be resolved.
