The hadoop-conf-pseudo package is a bit racey in that it depends on hadoop-namenode - however if the namenode has not finished deciding it can't start by the time hadoop-conf-pseudo formats the namenode filesystem the format fails and then the namenode won't start anyway.

Running:

sudo su hdfs -c "hadoop namenode -format"

Without the namenode running should workaround the issue
