installation failed on "configuration" step.
Status in libutempter package in Ubuntu:
"dpkg --configure -a" failed on libutempter0. It tries to create a
group "utempter", which exists in my LDAP groups, but not local
I can see a utempter group by
$ getent group | grep utemp
However, local /etc/group file does not contain utempter. I believe
this bug is similar to rpcbind bug which showed up in previous Redhat
