this is not a problem with sbuild or with libreoffice. From your log it seems
that the base-files package wasn't installed in your chroot before. This means
that the following line from the base-files postinst will be executed:


Usually, that conditional only get executed when you run debootstrap or
mmdebstrap because only in those scenarios should it happen that an
Essential:yes package is not installed yet. In your case, your chroot was
missing an Essential:yes package (base-files) and sbuild tried to install it
which failed because your chroot was already set up and thus had files in

You should be able to solve this problem by using a chroot that contains all
Essential:yes packages. How did you even create one without all of them?
