I am reporting it to the package that contains the script,

That's perfectly reasonable - thanks for catching this!

but the error
might be from junior-config being confused that I selected 0 users as
having junior menus.

Well, I removed all users from my list of junior users - but can not
reproduce this behaviour.  Could you please try to insert a line

  set -x

in line 128 of file /usr/share/cdd/unixgroups/cdd-actions
(or somewhere there) and send me the output of the installation?
In principle the script should be safe against working on zero
users - but perhaps something went wrong on your specific machine.

Kind regards and thanks for th ebug report


PS: To fix the installation on your machine you might consider
    switching of user menus via

      dpkg-reconfigure junior-config

    because it is sometimes nasty to work on a machine with
    broken packages.
