base-passwd in sid
(I'm not entirely sure if this is the right forum for this problem so
please let me know where to take this if I am off-topic.)
The package base-passwd in sid has refused to install on my box for the
past few weeks. Here is the output from apt-get:
Preconfiguring packages ...
Setting up base-passwd (3.4.3) ...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/base-passwd.postinst: line 1: tempfile: command not
dpkg: error processing base-passwd (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 127
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I've checked the contents of the base-passwd.postinst file but I didn't
see anything obviously amiss.
