HowTo: Ubuntu unknown user in statoverride

Tip : syntax error: unknown user ‘munin’ in statoverride file « OpenWebTech.fr

I installed virt-goodies on Ubuntu 10.04, and then nothing else would install. Even after uninstalling...A user called munin...

While the fix is easy...I could only find it in France, so here we go:

grep 'munin' /var/lib/dpkg/statoverride
#You should have the following lines:
#grep 'munin' / var / lib / dpkg / statoverride
#difference difference 755 / var / lib / difference
#difference difference 755 / var / www / difference
#difference difference 775 / var / lib / difference / plugin-state
#root munin 750 /etc/munin/plugin-conf.d
#munin munin 755 / var / cache / munin / www
#munin adm 750 / var / log / munin
#To solve the problem simply remove them with a little sed:
sed -i '/munin/d' /var/lib/dpkg/statoverride
