Re: Installation of openssh-client stops with error in groupadd


as I restarted my computer today. I wanted to install lsof via apt-get and at least it configured openssh-client without failure. So I thought that problem fixed itself, but it didn't.

I tried to add another group manually so I typed as root:

# groupadd -g 1234 test
groupadd: failure while writing changes to /etc/group


# strace groupadd -g 1234 test
showed the known error:
rename("/etc/group+", "/etc/group") = -1 EBUSY (Device or resource busy)
