> The cassandra debian package uses the addgroup and adduser commands in its postinst script,
which are found in the 'adduser' package, but the cassandra debian package does not depend
on adduser.   When a user does not already have adduser installed, this will lead to an error
like:
> {noformat}
> Setting up cassandra (0.7.0~rc1) ...
> /var/lib/dpkg/info/cassandra.postinst: 50: addgroup: not found
> dpkg: error processing cassandra (--configure):
>  subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 127
> {noformat}
> Yes, this won't happen much, because systems without adduser installed are rare.  But
adduser is not "Essential: yes", so it will happen sometimes in bare-bones VMs or development
environments.
