Details

The bind package installs a sysusers.conf file as /usr/lib/sysusers.d/bind.conf, so then the systemd pacman hook in /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/systemd-sysusers.hook will run and update the system users. Unfortunetally that happens only after the package post_install script runs, resulting in the following error:


$ sudo pacman -S bind
